Call for papers IEEE Transactions on Computational Imaging Special Issue Computational Imaging for Earth Sciences


This special issue seeks to compile relevant contributions from researchers in signal and image processing, inverse problems, machine learning, and related areas as applied to problems of image formation and analysis arising in the context of earth science applications covering the wide range of application domains.

From the core of the earth to the farthest reaches of our planets magnetic fields, the earth sciences are concerned with all aspects of monitoring, exploration, explanation, and exploitation of natural events and resources in the geo-sphere. Revolutions in computational imaging over the past two decades have had profound implications across this field, bringing new modalities into common use and impacting application domains from weather monitoring and prediction, subsurface sensing, seismic imaging and exploration, to the production of minerals, oil and gas. In all these areas, reliable information extraction by collecting and processing sensor data increasingly hinges on integrated sensor design, system modeling, and efficient computational methods. The scope of such models and methods have more recently integrated statistical pattern recognition and machine learning systems to account for variability that cannot be completely captured by physical models or simulation. Enabling most all of these processing methods are concomitant developments in optimization theory both in Euclidean spaces as well as on more general manifolds.

Within the broad context of computational imaging for earth sciences, topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:

Computational image formation and tomographic processing
Full Waveform Inversion (FWI)
Inverse scattering methods
Computational hyperspectral imaging
Advanced machine learning methods for computational imaging
Dimensionality reduction
Joint inversion / sensor fusion
Probabilistic modeling including random field and graphical models
Multilinear/tensor methods
Sparse representations and compressive sensing
Computational imaging methods for change and target detection
