Paper Abstract

A new product clutter model aimed at fitting the cumulative distribution function of high resolution SAR data is proposed. The model uses only the sample mean and variance of a region, and the number of uncorrelated images of the regions to estimate the cumulative distribution function of the power return. It is shown that the model is capable of accurately modeling grass and tree clutter for both single- and multipolarization data.
