  1. 1. Change Detection Using Multitemporal SAR Images

    Author : Osama Yousif; Yifang Ban; Lorenzo Bruzzones; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Change detection; ENVISAT ASAR; ERS-2 SAR; image denoising; Kittler-Illingworth algorithm; MAP-MRF classifier; modified ratio; multitemporal SAR images; nonlocal means NLM ; SAR speckle; urbanization;

    Abstract : Multitemporal SAR images have been used successfully for the detection of different types of environmental changes. The detection of urban change using SAR images is complicated due to the special characteristics of SAR images—for example, the existence of speckle and the complex mixture of the urban environment.

    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Polarimetric SAR; Scattering Decomposition; Man-Made Target Detection; Edge Detection; Superpixel; Urban Classification; Polarimetrisk SAR; Spridningsnedbrytning; Upptäckt av artificiella objekt; Kantupptäckt; Superpixel; Urban klassificering; Geodesy and Geoinformatics; Geodesi och geoinformatik;

    Abstract : Polarimetric Synthetic Aperture Radar (PolSAR) has been used for various remote sensing applications since more information could be obtained in multiple polarizations. The overall objective of this thesis is to investigate urban area information extraction from PolSAR data with the following specific objectives: (1) to exploit polarimetric scattering model-based decomposition methods for urban areas, (2) to investigate effective methods for man-made target detection, (3) to develop edge detection and superpixel generation methods, and (4) to investigate urban area classification and segmentation.

  4. 4. Sea Surface Current Measurements Using Along-Track Interferometric SAR

    Author : Anis Elyouncha; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Synthetic aperture radar; Ocean remote sensing; SAR; Along-track InSAR; Sea surface currents;

    Abstract : Ocean currents affect the weather, the climate and the marine ecosystem. Observing ocean currents is important for understanding the upper-ocean layer dynamics and its interaction with the other components of the climate system. In-situ measurements are sparse and their deployment and maintenance is costly. READ MORE

  5. 5. Sea Ice and Ocean Environmental Applications of Spaceborn SAR
