Different Faraday Rotation (FR) estimators are discussed, their estimation performances are assessed and com-pared to each other. The algorithms are applied on a set of quad-pol ALOS Pal-SAR data and the obtained esti-mates are validated against FR values derived from TEC maps obtained from GPS measurements.
