Polarimetric radar interferometry is much more sensitive to the distribution of oriented objects in a vegetated land surface than either polarimetry or interferometry alone. This paper shows that single-baseline polarimetric interferometry can be used to estimate the heights of oriented-vegetation volumes and underlying topography, while at least two baselines are needed for randomly oriented volumes. Single-baseline, calculated vegetation-height accuracies are in the range of 2-8 m for reasonable levels of vegetation orientation in forest canopies
