A Dual Mode Approach for Underwater Image Enhancement

Authors(2) :-A. Parameswari, M. V. Srinath

Enhancement of underwater image is one of the major areas of research in digital image processing. Underwater images are usually suffered from low intensity and noise. It proposes dual enhancement method. It is practically applied in both spatial and frequency domain. This paper is to enhance underwater image enhancement in both spatial and frequency domain. To enhance underwater images, we used an approach, such as two level noise removal and RGB intensity equalization. Noise removal is performed using spatial filter based and lossy image digitization such as PCA/JPEG2000 frequency domain based noise reduction. Histogram equalization is performed in both channels to get higher clarity.
