Entropy, alpha and anisotropy (H/alpha/A) of the polarimetric target decomposition of Cloude and Pettier has been an effective and popular tool for polarimetric SAR image analysis and geophysical parameter estimation. However, multi-look processing can severely affect the values of these parameters. In this paper, a Monte Carlo method is used to evaluate the multi- look effect on these parameters for various media of grass, forest and urban. The effect of pixel correlation due to over sampling, and the mixed pixel effects will also be investigated. DLR/E-SAR and JPL/AIRSAR L-band data are used in this study.
