A polarimetric electromagnetic scattering model for short branching vegetation is presented. With realistic structures which reasonably describe the relative positions of the particles, this model is able to consider the coherent effect due to the phase difference between the scattered fields from different particles, and account for the second-order near-field interaction between particles to which the relative positions and orientation of the particles are essential. The model validation with measurement is also presented, and excellent agreement is obtained.
