Data Compression for Multilook Polarimetric SAR Data


This letter attempts to address the problem on the emergence of negative eigenvalues in the coherency matrix after the compressing of multilook polarimetric synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data. A new nine-parameter expression for the eigenvalue decomposition of the coherency matrix is introduced, and a new compression algorithm is proposed for multilook… (More)
