As shown in Fig. 9, the value of the whole lake basin is 0.5, and the values of the bright and dark strips are 0.44 and 0.35, respectively. This indicates that the scattering mechanism of the entire lake basin in the “Ear” area is complex and is between isotropic scattering and completely random scattering, and the scattering mechanism of the dark strip is less complex than that of the bright strip. The anti-entropy value mainly characterizes the relationship between the two scattering mechanisms and does not include the major one. The values of the bright and dark strips are 0.28 and 0.38, respectively, indicating that the contribution of the main scattering mechanism of the dark strip is decreasing, whereas the contribution of other scattering mechanisms is increasing. Alpha () may be used to identify the scattering mechanism. It is known from the scattering mechanism of the Lop Nur lake basin that when is between 10 deg and 20 deg, primarily Odd is observed. Meanwhile, the scattered points gathered from the subregions, as shown in Fig. 9, also indicate that the main scattering mechanism of both the bright and dark strips is Odd. The comprehensive analysis of , , and indicates that the only relationship between the bright and dark strips is a brightness difference, while the general backscattering strengths of both the strips are high. In addition, the other scattering mechanisms of the bright strip also contribute, except for the main Odd mechanism, and should not be ignored. According to the preliminary analysis of the Odd mechanism of Lop Nur and the Freeman–Durden decomposition results, we conclude that the first component, T11, represents single-Odd; the second component, T22, represents Dbl; and the third component, T33, represents multiple scattering.
