Abstract
Nowadays, multidimensional Synthetic Aperture Radars are a very promising remote sensing tool, able to retrieve Earth surface information in a quantitative way. Nevertheless, the presence of speckle noise makes this task extremely complex as it prevents a correct estimation of the useful information. This paper presents and validates a noise model permitting to describe the behavior of speckle noise in correlated measurements. Since the model is derived only on the statistical description of the data, it may be exported to other domains apart from Synthetic Aperture Radars.
