Proposes a new method to calibrate L band polarimetric SAR using the forest data. Model based covariance matrix containing the distortion matrices and the scattering components from the forest were solved using the Pi-SAR data over the Japan uniform forest of Tomakomai, Hokkaido. The result showed that the distortion matrices depend on the function of the incidence angle and the operation timings.
