In this study, some of the most up-to-dated polarimet- ric approaches for sea oil slick observation are reviewed and their performance is discussed using actual C-band RadarSAT-2 SAR data where both oil slicks, related to the Deepwater Horizon accident, and oil seeps are present. Results demonstrate the unique benefits of polarimetric SAR data in: a) characterizing the scattering mechanism of sea surface with and without surfactants; b) providing information on the damping properties of the surfactant.

Abstract

In this study, some of the most up-to-dated polarimet- ric approaches for sea oil slick observation are reviewed and their performance is discussed using actual C-band RadarSAT-2 SAR data where both oil slicks, related to the Deepwater Horizon accident, and oil seeps are present. Results demonstrate the unique benefits of polarimetric SAR data in: a) characterizing the scattering mechanism of sea surface with and without surfactants; b) providing information on the damping properties of the surfactant.
