Now-a-days there has been growing interest in dual-pol systems, especially in hybrid-pol mode. In comparison to quad-pol system, the dual-pol system has the advantage of halved average transmitted power and double swath coverage. In this paper, we have discussed, in brief, the benefits of using hybrid-pol scheme. We also present comparisons of hybrid-pol and Quad-pol data based on the amount of information content. The airborne multi-polarization GTRI data set is used for demonstration.
