The JERS-1 is an Earth Resources Satellite launched by NASDA (Natinal Space Development Agency) of Japan, in February in 1992 and has two sensors; SAR(L-Band Synthetic Aperture Radar) and OPS (SWIR and VNIR radiometers). In this research note, the basic properties and data characteristics of the SAR data are summarized based on the observations made on the data sets received for the Nahanni Canadian test site, Northwest Territories. The JERS-1 SAR data quality. including the spatial resolution of the data, is, in general, excellent for most geological applications.
