Paper Abstract

In using matched filtering techniques to recognize and count species of diatoms, the two basic problems are the sensitivity of the system to size and to orientational variations between individuals of a given species. Since diatoms seem to be randomly oriented on the slides one reasonable approach to overcoming these difficulties is to make the filter matched to some average nember of the species and then to use statistical information to estimate the actual size of the population. This technique is applied to two populations of diatoms. Experimental results are presented and discussed.
