What is the difference between Mueller and Kennaugh matrix? I notice some text considers them the same while the others not. As far as I have read so far, Kennaugh matrix is considered symmetric while Mueller matrix not. I think they both connect the input Stokes vector to the output Stokes vector.
Maybe this extract helps you
@ABraun I don’t really understand the concept of forward and backward scattering. Since we are dealing with backscattered signals from the satellite (monostatic systems) is backward scattering not the only way?
