This paper evaluates the influence of incoherent double-bounce scattering mechanisms on ground parameters estimation. A man-made miniaturized RVoG-like scene is imaged in order to validate our assumptions on this incoherent double-bounce. Consisting of a structured vegetated volume lying above a ground, this scene highlights the presence of ground/volume double-bounce which, as shown in this paper, strongly affects ground contributions.
