We found a mistake in the swath detection rule in Section 2.4 [1]. Specifically, the percent deviation calculation in the definition of the signal changes D1 and D2 and axiom A2 are altered. The correct version shall be: Consequently, the proposed rule for the detection of swath events consists of two axioms (A1 and A2) that need to be satisfied. For the signal backscatter (σ°) at a specific acquisition order number (k) of the acquired scene in the time series (N), the positive or negative signal changes in percent deviation for the first (D1) and second (D2) acquisition after a potential swath event are considered as: [...]
