This letter presents a threshold selection method in change detection (CD) with synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images, which combines the characteristics of two different CD measures by using the Markov random field model. One is the well-known log-ratio CD measure, and the other is derived from the likelihood ratio and is based on the statistical properties of SAR intensity images. The proposed unsupervised CD algorithm overcomes the shortcomings and strengthens the advantages of these two measures. The experimental results with two pairs of SAR images show that the proposed algorithm is effective and better than the algorithms using the two aforementioned CD measures.
