  • erosion

In image processing, a morphology operator in which a structuring element or probe of a particular shape is moved over the input image. Where the probe fits completely within the boundaries of a shape in the image, a pixel is placed in the output image. The input shapes accordingly appear smaller (eroded) in size in the output image, and any input shapes smaller than the size of the probe disappear altogether.
