Ge, Y, Du, YY, Cheng, QM, Li, C (2006). Multifractal filtering method for extraction of ocean eddies from remotely sensed imagery. ACTA OCEANOLOGICA SINICA, 25(5), 27-38.

Abstract
Traditional methods of extracting the ocean wave eddy information from remotely sensed imagery mainly use the edge detection technology such as Canny and Hough operators. However, due to the complexities of ocean eddies and image itself, it is sometimes difficult to successfully detect ocean eddies using these methods. A multifractal filtering technology is proposed for extraction of ocean eddies and demonstrated using NASA MODIS,SeaWiFS and NOAA satellite data set in the typical area, such as ocean west boundary current. Results showed that the new method has a superior performance over the traditional methods.
