The technical availability of free Sentinel-1 radar imagery gives good opportunities for their use to solve a wide range of applied problems in the area of Earth remote sensing.

This paper illustrates some PHOTOMOD Radar software package capabilities for Sentinel-1 imagery processing. The paper comprises several processing examples: 

• Digital elevation model creation by the two-pass interferometry method 
• Creating a surface type digital map by the interferometric method   
• Detecting surface vessels and estimating their characteristics           
• Detecting oil slicks in radar imagery  
• Analyzing sea waves in radar imagery         
• Orthorectifying of radar imagery
