The joint use of diverse sensors is of major interest in the remote sensing community. With view to the repeatability of acquisitions, todays satellite sensor systems provide a temporal resolution of about one month in the Shannon sense. Thus, the joint use of different sensor systems is unavoidable for monitoring purposes. This contribution designs a novel similarity transformation that extracts class similarities based on local distributions from any available image independent of sensor (TerraSAR-X, RADARSAT-2, Sentinel-1) or polarimetric mode (Quad, Dual-Co, Dual-Cross, Single). The resulting class probability development characterizes the temporal change of the Peace Athabasca Δ in Northern Canada.
