In this study recent advances in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) polarimetry to observe sea oil slicks and man-made metallic targets are reviewed in the frame of the ESA funded PolSAR-Ap project. The most up-to-dated quad-pol approaches to observe sea oil slicks and metallic targets are reviewed and their performance is discussed against conventional single- and dual-pol approaches using actual L- and C-band Single Look Complex (SLC) SAR data. The unique benefits of quad-pol SAR data to observe both oil slicks and metallic targets are clearly shown.

Abstract

In this study recent advances in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) polarimetry to observe sea oil slicks and man-made metallic targets are reviewed in the frame of the ESA funded PolSAR-Ap project. The most up-to-dated quad-pol approaches to observe sea oil slicks and metallic targets are reviewed and their performance is discussed against conventional single- and dual-pol approaches using actual L- and C-band Single Look Complex (SLC) SAR data. The unique benefits of quad-pol SAR data to observe both oil slicks and metallic targets are clearly shown.
