The use of the l2-norms of the scattering vectors is suggested to texture analysis of PolSAR data, with the benefits that neither we need to analyze the polarimetric channels separately, nor we need to filter the data to analyze the statistics. Base on the product model, the distribution of the l2-norms is studied, as well as statistics including normalized moments and log-cumulants. Results on simulated data show that the use of the statistics based on the l2-norms brings advantages with respect to the normalized intensity moments and matrix variate log-cumulants.
