  • SAR images are generally affected by speckle noise due to the interference of reflected waves from many elementary scatterers. The speckle complicates image interpretation and reduces the effectiveness of automatic image analysis techniques. A good filter should maintain the signal mean value and reduce the speckle while preserving the edges. Adaptive filters use an estimation of the variation coefficient. The utilization of fixed size windows produces poor estimates. We examine new ways to use… CONTINUE READING
