  journal={IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Magazine},
This paper is under review in IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Magazine. Remote sensing provides valuable information about objects or areas from a distance in either active (e.g., RADAR and LiDAR) or passive (e.g., multispectral and hyperspectral) modes. The quality of data acquired by remotely sensed imaging sensors (both active and passive) is often degraded by a variety of noise types and artifacts. Image restoration, which is a vibrant field of research in the remote sensing community… Expand
An Efficient Image Deblurring Method with a Deep Convolutional Neural Network for Satellite Imagery
Satellite imagery acquired from optical remote sensing systems is often suffered due to several types of blur, such as atmospheric turbulence blur, motion blur, and defocus. Any kind of blur degradesExpand


Sparse Hyperspectral Image Modeling and Restoration
Stein’s unbiased risk estimator (SURE) is introduced as an automatic technique for model and tuning parameter selection (including rank selection) for hyperspectral image analysis and several sparse reduced-rank restoration techniques are proposed for Hyperspectral feature extraction and restoration and compared based on classification accuracies.

Noise Reduction in Hyperspectral Imagery: Overview and Application
An overview of the techniques developed in the past decade for hyperspectral image noise reduction is provided, and the performance of these techniques by applying them as a preprocessing step to improve a hyperspectrals image analysis task, i.e., classification. Expand
Remote Sensing Image Stripe Noise Removal: From Image Decomposition Perspective
This paper first gives a detailed analysis about the structural characteristic of stripes and the prior knowledge about the remote sensing images, and proposes a low-rank-based single-image decomposition model (LRSID) to separate the original image from the stripe component perfectly. Expand
Exploiting Patch Similarity for SAR Image Processing: The nonlocal paradigm
A comprehensive survey of patch-based nonlocal filtering of SAR images, focusing on the two main ingredients of the methods: measuring patch similarity and estimating the parameters of interest from a collection of similar patches. Expand
Destriping Remote Sensing Image via Low-Rank Approximation and Nonlocal Total Variation
This letter considers the nonlocal self-similarity of image patches in the spatiospectral volume in terms of nonlocal total variation and proposes a method of better robustness to dense stripes that outperforms other competing methods in the remote sensing image destriping task. Expand
Multiscale Intensity Propagation to Remove Multiplicative Stripe Noise From Remote Sensing Images
The results of extensive experiments on simulated and real remote sensing image data demonstrate that the proposed method can, in most cases, yield desirable results and can conform to the requirements of engineering applications. Expand
A Bayesian Restoration Approach for Hyperspectral Images
A Bayesian restoration technique for multiple observations of hyperspectral (HS) images is presented, based on an expectation-maximization algorithm, which applies a deblurring step and a denoising step iteratively to include spatial information from the MS image. Expand
NL-InSAR: Nonlocal Interferogram Estimation
A statistically grounded patch-similarity criterion suitable to SLC images is derived and a weighted maximum likelihood estimation of the SAR interferogram is then computed with weights derived in a data-driven way. Expand
Image deblurring for satellite imagery using small-support-regularized deconvolution
The deblurring result proves that this method successfully restores fine image detail, particularly for line features, and is comparable with other state-of-the-art methods and has advantages for image contrast and edge strength. Expand
Anisotropic Spectral-Spatial Total Variation Model for Multispectral Remote Sensing Image Destriping
This paper tentatively categorizes the stripes in remote sensing images in a more comprehensive manner and proposes to treat the multispectral images as a spectral-spatial volume and pose an anisotropic spectral- spatial total variation regularization to enhance the smoothness of solution along both the spectral and spatial dimension.
