Summary of Proposal OCE3047

TitleOil Spill Detection using polarimetric features

SummaryThis proposal is related to the study of oil spill monitoring with SAR images by means of polarization ratio and NRCS. Thus, dual-polarimetric TerraSAR-X images are necessary in order to get the PR image. The goal is to assess the validity of their joint use for oil spill detection and if this kind of approach can be more efficient than the traditional ones. Moreover, also the performance of different kinds of detectors can be assessed. The output of the experiment might lead to new knowledge/experience w.r.t. oil spill detection. The funding is by internal research funding.
