As part of a series of live webinars for the IEEE Geoscience & Remote Sensing Society (GRSS), IEEE.tv will broadcast a presentation by Dr. Alejandro C. Frery: “Statistical Information Theory and Geometry for SAR Image Analysis.”
Statistics has a prominent role in SAR – Synthetic Aperture Radar image processing and analysis. More often than not, these data cannot be described by the usual additive Gaussian noise model. Rather than that, a multiplicative signal-dependent model adequately models the observations. After summarizing the main distributions for both the univariate (intensity and amplitude) and multivariate (fully polarimetric) image formats, we present eight seemingly different problems, and how they can be formulated and solved in an unified manner from a statistical viewpoint using Information Theory and Information Geometry.
