[DOI: 10.21982/pzj2-fm81] Optimized Twin Dictionaries (OTD) for Hyperspectral and Multispectral Image Fusion
Han, Xiaolin; Xue, Jing-Hao; Sun, Weidong
This MATLAB code is designed to fuse low-spatial-resolution hyperspectral (LH) images and high-spatial-resolution multispectral (HM) images. The fusion problem is formulated analytically in the framework of sparse representation, as an optimization of twin spectral-spatial dictionaries and their corresponding sparse coefficients. More specifically, the spectral dictionary representing the generalized spectrums and its spectral sparse coefficients are optimized by utilizing the observed LH and HM images in the spectral domain; and the spatial dictionary representing the spatial information and its spatial sparse coefficients are optimized by modeling the rest of high-frequency information in the spatial domain.

Imaging applications of SeaWinds on QuikSCAT and ADEOS II are acilitated by applying reconstruction and resolution enhancement algorithms to produce high resolution images of the surface normalized radar cross section (sigma-0).

The pencil-beam design of SeaWinds, coupled with the onboard processing, results in a spatial response function with varies significantly between measurements and is a function of orbit and antenna position. The computational complexity of the SeaWinds spatial response function requires that a method of parameters for effective use. This code interpolates two precomputed files to efficiently evaluate a 2d polynomial parameterized full SRF for individual slice measurements as a function of orbit position, antenna rotation angle, and polarization. Fortran, C, and some Matlab versions of the code are available along with required binary parameter files.

Nashashibi, Adib
This code calibrates the measured backscatter response of a point target using the Single Target Calibration Technique (STCT). The elements of the scattering matrix of the target must be measured coherently. The code loads all necessary measured data from files and manipulates the input data before performing calibration steps. The code needs measured data for the calibration target (metallic sphere) and the measured data for the unknown target (target under test) that is intended for calibration. All in ascii format. It requires two measured data files for the cal_target (sphere). One of the files contains the measured sphere data and the 2nd file contains the measured background data (without sphere). It also requires two data files for the unknown target (or target under test) intended for calibration. One file is for measured target data and the 2nd file holds background data. All files hold the measured complex scattering matrix. Background data may be ignored, however the user must modify the code to permit this step. Additional information that must be inputted by the user are sphere size, range to sphere, range to unknown target, start and stop frequencies, and number of frequency points used. Samples of input and output data are included. main code: stct_calibr_maincode.m second. code: RCSmetallic_sphere.m Calibr. target data: cal_target_data.dat (8 inch sphere) Unknown target data: target_12inchSphere_data.dat Sample output plot: CalibratedResponse_12inchSphere.eps

Two main programs: one computes a downward-propagating brightness-temperature spectrum at the bottom of the atmosphere; the other computes an upward-propagating brightness-temperature spectrum over a smooth ocean surface. These programs can be run as is, or read as examples for using the subroutines in another application. The programs ask for the frequency range, angle of propagation (from vertical), and the maximum altitude at which to terminate the calculation.

The Maximum Cross-correlation (MCC) method cross-correlates a template sub-window in an initial image with all possible sub-windows of the same size that fall within a larger search window of a second image. The location of the sub-window in the second image that produces the highest cross-correlation with the sub-window in the first image indicates the displacement of that feature. The velocity vector is then calculated by dividing the displacement vector by the time separation between the two images.


[DOI: 10.21982/M8W888] Multiple Layers Single Reflections
Cardellach, Estel; Fabra, Fran
Multiple Layers Single Reflections (MLSR) is a model for L-band circularly polarized signals (such as GNSS signals) scattered off layered media. It assumes that the reflection off each layer is coherent, and that the signal splits into multiple path trajectories, each path suffering one single reflection solely. The model first computes the delay and amplitude of each reflected multi-path, taking into account the refraction and reflection angles, reflectivities and transmittivities at each interface, and attenuation along each layer. Then it sums coherently all these contributions with their corresponding amplitudes, shifting in delay and phase-delay. INPUT: layers' permittivities or parameterization (density, temperature, salinity...).
