Distributed compressed sensing is the extension of compressed sampling (CS) to sensor networks. The idea is to
design a CS joint decoding scheme at a central decoder (base station) that exploits the inter-sensor correlations, in
order to recover the whole observations from very few number of random measurements per node. In this paper,
we focus on modeling the correlations and on the design and analysis of efficient joint recovery algorithms.
We show, by extending earlier results of Baron et al.,<sup>1</sup> that a simple thresholding algorithm can exploit the
full diversity offered by all channels to identify a common sparse support using a near optimal number of
