  22. 22. Conclusion <ul><li>Circular polarization information of PALSAR L-band data has been used in this study to detect hidden fault structures striking in various directions. </li></ul><ul><li>The Optimal Polarization Contrast Enhancement (O.P.C.E) method which maximizes the ratio of backscattered strength between faults (targets) and the surrounding sedimentary material (clutter) clearly defined the fault zones. </li></ul><ul><li>Faults that are largely undetectable on optical images or on the ground were detected on satellite radar images and confirmed with GPR. </li></ul><ul><li>These highly fractured zones are possibly favorable zones for groundwater accumulation. </li></ul>IGARSS 2011, 24-29 July, Vancouver, Canada
