A new class of distributions, G distributions, arising from the multiplicative model is presented, along with their main properties and relations. Their densities are derived for complex and multilook intensity and amplitude data. Classical distributions, such as K, are particular cases of this new class. A special case of this class called G0, that has as many parameters as K distributions, is shown able to model extremely heterogeneous clutter, such as that of urban areas, that cannot be properly modeled with K distributions. One of the parameters of this special case is related to the degree of homogeneity, and a limiting case is that of a scaled speckle. The advantage of the G 0 distribution becomes evident through the analysis of a variety of areas (urban, primary forest and deforested) from two sensors
