This study presents a new automatic change detection process chain based on bi-temporal co-registered and calibrated Sentinel-1 level-1 Interferometric Wide (IW) Ground Range Detected (GRD) C-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) intensity imagery. The whole processor contains three main components: Firstly, a prepro- cessing step is used to perform geometrical and radiometrical calibration. Secondly, an automatic coarse detection step is applied based on a statistical hypothesis test to obtain an initial classifcation. Thirdly, a post-classifcation step is introduced to optimise the initial classifcation result in the form of minimising a global energy function de�ned on a Markov Random Field (MRF). In this study, a graph-cut algorithm is applied iteratively to solve the global optimisation problem. At each iteration, the data energy function for the current classification are set by the logarithmic probability density function (PDF). The relevant parameters are estimated by the method of logarithmic cumulants (MoLC). An appendix is presented at the end to explain the formulae used in this study. Experiments are performed using a good event which occurred in 2015 along the coastline of Greece near Kavala region and the Evros River at the border between Greece and Turkey. The proposed method shows a satisfying classifcation result with overall accuracy above 95% and kappa coefcient (�) above 0.87.
