Inspired by the wavelet soft thresholding principle, shrinkage methods suited for the thresholding of the decomposition modes resulting from applying EMD to a signal are developed in this paper. We show, that although a direct application of this principle is not feasible in the EMD case, it can be appropriately adapted by exploiting the special characteristics of the EMD decomposition modes. Moreover, the SCAD thresholding rule is also incorporated and an iterative soft thresholding procedure is proposed which leads to enhanced denoising performance.
