I am a Doctoral Student at CSRE, IITBombay. I did specialization in Agricultural Engineering and Remote Sensing. The main goal of my research is to understand how crop canopy interacts with radar signals by using both Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) remote sensing and physical scattering models. Combining remote sensing observations and the models is my approach to understand crop dynamics. For me, the key question is how to relate crop dynamics for better prediction of yield within a crop season, especially during the Indian monsoon? In our lab, we are trying to tackle these challenges with the concepts of SAR polarimetry and crop simulations through different field campaigns and SAR observables. We believe that the SAR has a high potential for agricultural crop monitoring along with the optical sensors. “And this is just the beginning; we have not even scratched the surface”.
