The extensive research leveraging RGB-D information has been exploited in salient object detection. However, salient visual cues appear in various scales and resolutions of RGB images due to semantic gaps at different feature levels. Meanwhile, similar salient patterns are available in cross-modal depth images as well as multi-scale versions. Cross-modal fusion and multi-scale refinement are still an open problem in RGB-D salient object detection task. In this paper, we begin by introducing

We conduct extensive experiments on seven public datasets. The experimental results show the effectiveness of our devised method
