The Infrared Astronomical Satellite (IRAS) images with wavelengths of 60 [mu] m and 100 [mu] m contain mainly information on both extra-galactic sources and low-temperature interstellar media. The low-temperature interstellar media in the Milky Way impose a "cirrus" screen of IRAS images, especially in images with 100 [mu] m wavelength. This dissertation deals with the techniques of removing the "cirrus" clouds from the 100 [mu] m band in order to achieve accurate determinations of point sources and their intensities (fluxes). We employ an image filtering process which utilizes mathematical morphology and wavelet analysis as the key tools in removing the ...
