This dataset provides height profiles derived from UAVSAR (Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar; JPL) data acquired over Lope National Park and Rabi Forest in Gabon as part of the AfriSAR campaign in 2016. These data were produced using synthetic aperture radar tomography (TomoSAR), a method that reveals three-dimensional forest structures by extending the conventional two-dimensional imaging capabilities of radars using multiple images acquired from slightly different antenna positions. AfriSAR was an airborne campaign that collected radar, lidar, and field measurements of forests in Gabon, West Africa, as part of a collaborative mission between NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Gabonese Space Agency. These data will help prepare for and calibrate current and upcoming spaceborne missions that aim to gauge the role of forests in Earth's carbon cycle, such as the Global Ecosystem Dynamics Investigation (GEDI).
