Noise and non-uniform gray level in underwater image cause the low segment precision, this paper presents a segmentation framework based on morphological component analysis (MCA) and fuzzy clustering with variational level set. The framework uses MCA method to sparse decompose the image into texture and cartoon parts. The cartoon part contains the mainly… CONTINUE READING
