Abstract
This work presents a morphological-based segmentation approach for coastline detection based on a waterfall hierarchical scheme. Hierarchical waterfall is constrained my markers in each step on the hierarchical tree. In this manner, a map of the waterfall minimum persistency is created to identify the coastline. The proposed algorithm was tested on Envisat-ASAR and TerraSAR-X images acquired over the Lisbon region.
