My colleagues and I are arguing about how to smooth a damped wave signal.
This signal is corrupted by white noise of a steady magnitude.
However the signal damps out as it goes along. So, the SNR and the noise as a standard dev of the signal range, both decrease.
My colleagues say I can denoise it the same the entire time, because the magnitude of the noise is the same. I say I have to adapt, because the SNR is the guiding factor.
