Backscattering variability in subswaths

Hallo,

does the Snap Toolbox offer ways to adjust varying backscatter in different subswaths (see the attached image taken from a quicklook of S1A_IW_SLC__1SDV_20160426T090824_20160426T090852_010990_01082A_89AF)?

While I have read some discussion regarding striping in low backscatter regions, suggestions w.r.t. thermal noise removal and calibration, I am still not able to sufficiently get rid of such effects.

Thanks in advance for any suggestion,
Ron

I still get some difference between subswath 2 and 3 but it’s a little bit less noticeable than in yours.
I first removed thermal noise, then calibrate, then deburst.

Thank you for your reply. This is also the way I’m processing the data right now, yet I was hoping that there might be a way to further optimize the result.

Do you know some more details about these effects? Are there efforts to further calibrate the sensor or develop processing steps to suppress them?

Thanks again for your help.
