Adaptive-Window Polarimetric SAR Image Speckle Filtering Based on a Homogeneity Measurement

This paper proposes a polarimetric homogeneity measurement and applies it to the speckle filtering of polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (PolSAR) data. First, a line-and-edge (LAE) detector that can detect both the lines and edges in one scan is dev…

Classification of Remotely Sensed Images Using the GeneSIS Fuzzy Segmentation Algorithm

In this paper, we propose an integrated framework of the recently proposed Genetic Sequential Image Segmentation (GeneSIS) algorithm. GeneSIS segments the image in an iterative manner, whereby at each iteration, a single object is extracted via a genet…

Investigation of the Electronic Crosstalk in Terra MODIS Band 28

The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) is a whisk broom scanning radiometer, which is onboard the Terra and Aqua spacecraft. Both MODIS instruments have successfully completed more than 12 years of on-orbit flight. The long-wave infr…

An Improved M-PRT Technique for Spectral Analysis of Weather Radar Observations

The exploitation of Doppler radars for weather observations is strongly constrained by the well-known range-velocity dilemma. To overcome the range and velocity ambiguities, dual and triple staggered pulse-repetition time (PRT) techniques are commonly …
