Hyperspectral images (HSIs) are frequently corrupted by various types of noise, such as Gaussian noise, impulse noise, stripes, and deadlines due to the atmospheric conditions or imperfect hyperspectral imaging sensors. These types of noise, which are also called mixed noise, severely degrade the HSI and limit the performance of post-processing operations, such as classification, unmixing, target recognition, and so on. The patch-based low-rank and sparse based approaches have shown their

In this paper, we propose a group low-rank and spatial-spectral TV (GLSSTV) to denoise HSI. Here, the advantage is twofold. First, group low-rank exploits the local similarity inside patches and non-local similarity between patches which brings extra structural information. Second, SSTV helps in removing Gaussian and sparse noise using the spatial and spectral smoothness of HSI. The extensive simulations show that GLSSTV is effective in removing mixed noise both quantitatively and qualitatively and it outperforms the state-of-the-art low-rank and TV-based methods.
