Although there have been numerous books on wavelet applications to various scientific disciplines, this cutting-edge, practical book is the first to concentrate on wavelet applications to remote sensing and subsurface sensing from an engineer's point of view. The book introduces you to wavelet transform uses in a wide range of sensing technologies, demonstrates the usefulness of combining the wavelet transform with other signal processing tools to solve complicated sensing technology problems, and features several time-saving algorithms and MATLAB codes that help you with your specific projects in the field. Supported with over 600 equations and more than 100 illustrations, this unique reference focuses on the processing of signals from Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR). Specific remote sensing applications presented in the book include noise and clutter reduction in SAR images, SAR image compression, texture and boundary enhancement in SAR images, directional noise removal, and general image processing. You also find in-depth coverage of wavelet techniques for medical diagnostics from images. Other critical topics include artificial neural networks, the Markov random field, and artificial intelligence.
