Geoscience and Remote Sensing Letters (GRSL)

The IEEE GEOSCIENCE AND REMOTE SENSING LETTERS is a monthly publication for short papers (maximum length 5 pages) addressing new ideas and formative concepts in remote sensing as well as important new and timely results and concepts.
Papers should relate to the theory, concepts, and techniques of science and engineering as applied to sensing the earth, oceans, atmosphere, and space, and the processing, interpretation, and dissemination of this information.
The technical content of papers must be both new and significant. Experimental data must be complete and include sufficient description of experimental apparatus, methods, and relevant experimental conditions. GRSL encourages the incorporation of “extended objects” or “multimedia” such as animations to enhance the shorter papers. As soon as papers are accepted and materials are available at IEEE, they will appear online through the IEEE digital library Xplore.

A Robust Infrared Small Target Detection Algorithm Based on Human Visual System

Robust human visual system (HVS) properties can effectively improve the infrared (IR) small target detection capabilities, such as detection rate, false alarm rate, speed, etc. However, current algorithms based on HVS usually improve one or two of the …

On the Baseband Doppler Centroid Estimation for Multichannel HRWS SAR Imaging

In multichannel high-resolution and wide-swath (HRWS) synthetic aperture radar (SAR) systems, Doppler centroid (DC) is essential for SAR focusing. However, conventional phase-dependent DC estimators for single-channel SAR systems face many problems in …

Sample Discriminant Analysis for SAR ATR

Feature extraction is a key step in synthetic-aperture-radar automatic target recognition. In this letter, we propose a novel feature extraction method named sample discriminant analysis (SDA) that is based on the manifold learning theory. The method d…

Similarities Between Spaceborne Active and Airborne Passive Microwave Observations at 1 km Resolution

For the first time, airborne passive microwave data were collected at 1 km resolution over parts of Central Australia coinciding with spaceborne active data, allowing a comparison of such data sets acquired at medium (1 km) spatial resolution. L-band a…

Robust Image Registration Using Structure Features

Due to repetitive patterns and gray changes in the remote sensing images, feature-point-based registration methods generally fail to determine every correctly matched point. In this letter, a novel registration algorithm that uses point structure infor…

Digital Beamforming on Receive in Elevation for Multidimensional Waveform Encoding SAR Sensing

This letter investigates the performance of a waveform-separation approach employing a posteriori digital beamforming (DBF) in elevation for multidimensional waveform encoding SAR sensing. The signal-to-noise ratio scaling factor in elevation and full-…

A Subspace-Based Multinomial Logistic Regression for Hyperspectral Image Classification

In this letter, we propose a multinomial-logistic-regression method for pixelwise hyperspectral classification. The feature vectors are formed by the energy of the spectral vectors projected on class-indexed subspaces. In this way, we model not only th…
