Speckle appears as a grainy "salt and pepper" texture in an image. This is caused by random constructive and destructive interference from the multiple scattering returns that will occur within each resolution cell. Speckle is essentially a form of noise which degrades the quality of an image and may make interpretation (visual or digital) more difficult. Thus, it is generally desirable to reduce speckle prior to interpretation and analysis. Read more: CCRS Remote Sensing Tutorial
