Hollinger JP, Mennella RA. Aircraft-borne multifrequency passive microwave observations of eight marine oil spills revealed that, in all cases, over 90 percent of the oil was confined in a compact region comprising less than 10 percent of the Cited by: Microwave radiometry is proven to be a reliable approach for the detection of hot spots masked by dielectric obstacles [12] [13] [14][15]. Microwave signals, in fact, can penetrate low-loss. Oil spill detection and monitoring is currently done with the aid of several techniques and sensors, with dual and multi-frequency advanced algorithms that target oil spill detection for unknown.

This book contains a selection of refereed papers presented at the 6 Specialist Meeting on Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing of the Environment held in Florence, Italy on March , Over the last two decades, passive microwave remote sensing has made considerable progress, and has achieved significant results in the study of the Earth's surface and atmosphere.

Summary. The ability to effectively monitor the atmosphere on a continuous basis requires remote sensing in microwave. Written for physicists and engineers working in the area of microwave sensing of the atmosphere, Ground-Based Microwave Radiometry and Remote Sensing: Methods and Applications is completely devoted to ground-based remote sensing. This text covers the fundamentals of . Abstract. This paper proposes the use of a digital microwave marine radar system for the detection and monitoring of surfactant slicks at sea. The spatial, temporal and radiometric resolutions of this low grazing angle instrument are compared to those of satellite and airborne radars traditionally used for oil pollution : Christine P Gommenginger, Simon R Boxall.
