There is no doubt that retrieving observed scene features is one of the most interesting and challenging activities in all fields of remote sensing: The successful extraction of scene parameters may not only mean the success of the adopted procedure but also the success of a prediction model, an image product, a sensor project, or even an entire mission. This paper is partly concerned with this. The mission, the sensor, and the products at issue are the TerraSAR-X; the feature retrieval approach is the deterministic model-based approach already tested on E-SAR images and now in phase of improvement and testing on high-resolution TerraSAR-X images. Together with assessing the performances of TerraSAR-X products, this paper deals with a new application which, until now, has not received enough attention even if being worth of it: monitoring of big tanks in suburban or urban areas. Detailed discussion concerning the most suitable product for this kind of application is accompanied by retrieval results carried out on recently acquired TerraSAR-X images.
