Normalized Coherency Matrix Estimation Under the SIRV Model. Alpine Glacier Polsar Data Analysis

Abstract : This paper presents an application of the recent advances in the field of Spherically Invariant Random Vectors modelling. We propose the use of the Fixed Point (FP) estimator for deriving normalized polarimetric coherency matrices in compound Gaussian clutter. The main advantages of the FP estimator are that it does not require any "a priori" information about the probability density function of the texture and it can be directly applied on adaptive neighborhoods. Interesting results are obtained when coupling this FP estimator with an adaptive spatial support driven on the scalar span information. The proposed method is tested with both simulated POLSAR data and high resolution POLSAR data acquired over the French Alps.
