The proposed paper is about the description of textured areas in synthetic aperture sonar images. The texture descriptors come from the recursive interferometric representation of signals. This representation originates from a scattering operator that iterates over a wavelet transform and a modulus operator. This representation is invariant to translations and Lipschitz continuous relatively to deformations up to a log factor. A scattering metric can be derived from the scattering operator and used to quantify the similarity between signals. The scattering metric was used with a simple classifier to classify synthetic aperture sonar images with respect to the types of sea bottom.
