A processing technique to exploit temporal series of coregistered Polarimetric Synthetic Aperture Radar (PolSAR) images is presented in this paper. This technique will be based on a region-based and multi-scale data representation, the Binary Partition Tree (BPT). The BPT represents the data structure at different detail levels and may be useful for different applications. Different alternatives to deal with the temporal dimension of the data will be addressed and analyzed over a real RADARSAT-2 dataset.
