We have observed the ability of observers to locate signals embedded in white noise and other nonwhite and nonstationary images. Performance was found to be consistent with that predicted by a cross correlator that takes into account the variability of the background image (normalization) and that assumes a degree of uncertainty as to the precise location of the signal.
