This work employs a Polarimetric SAR Interferometry (PolInSAR) two-layer model in order to separate the polarimetric response from ground and volume contributions in vegetated scenarios. The full rank covariance matrix for the ground and volume components may be extracted. The polarimetric properties of the extracted components will be evaluated under different acquisition conditions, in order to better understand the potentials of the PolInSAR separation technique for bio/geo-physical parameters extraction.
