The aim of this work was to extend the results of Perez et al. (Physica A (2006), 365 (2), 282-288) to the two-dimensional (2D) fractional Brownian field. In particular, we defined Shannon entropy using the wavelet spectrum from which the Hurst exponent is estimated by the regression of the logarithm of the square coefficients over the levels of resolutions. Using the same methodology. we also defined two other entropies in 2D: Tsallis and the Renyi entropies. A simulation study was performed for showing the ability of the method to characterize 2D (in this case, α = 2) self-similar processes.
