Multichannel synthetic aperture radar (SAR) data present a good potential for environmental monitoring and disaster management, owing both to their insensitivity to atmospheric and sun-illumination conditions, and to the improved discrimination capability they may provide as compared to single-channel SAR. However, this requires accurate and possibly automatic techniques to generate change maps from multichannel SAR images acquired from the same geographic area at different times. In this letter, an automatic unsupervised contextual change-detection method is proposed for two-date multichannel SAR images, by integrating a SAR-specific extension of the Fisher transform with a variant of the expectation-maximization algorithm and with Markov random fields. The method is validated by experiments on SIR-C/XSAR data
