Abstract

Images captured under bad weather conditions suffer from poor contrast and visibility. These effects are noticeable for haze, mist, fog, or dust storms. We have proposed a recovering method for images captured for several adverse weather conditions based on the RGB response ratio constancy under illuminant changes. This algorithm improves the visibility, contrast, and color in degraded images with low computational times. We obtain results similar to those from previously published deweathering methods but with no prior information about the image content or atmospheric parameters needed.
