Radar remote sensing for oil spill classification (optimization for enhanced classification)

K. Sankaran; J. F. Guasch Proceedings of the 12th IEEE Mediterranean Electrotechnical Conference (IEEE Cat. No.04CH37521), 2004

Oil spills are a major factor in the ocean pollution. The complications involved in detecting oil spills are due to varying wind and sea surface conditions. The main aim of this paper is to find the best combination of transmit and receive polarizations for optimal detection of oil spills which can extend the tolerance and validity ranges of single and ...


Inversion of wavelet coefficients in oil spills detection in radar images for environment risk reduction in Adriatic Sea

Ivica Kuzmanić; Joško Šoda; Zlatan Kulenović; Mirjana Vujović 2009 International Symposium ELMAR, 2009

Problem of oil spills detection is involvement of dark colors. Dark colors are close to 0 and cannot be detected by image differencing. The paper presents an idea to overcome the detection problem for oil spills. By using DWT, the idea is to remove parts of the signal which represent main structures such as coastlines and increase noise. Wavelet analysis ...


Some German aspects on the transport of oil and oil products in the Baltic Sea and possible consequences in the case of casualties

H. U. Oebius 2004 USA-Baltic Internation Symposium, 2004

The Baltic Sea is a highly sensitive marginal sea with only a narrow entrance and subsea glacial barriers which prohibit regular exchange of oxygen-rich seawater with the Atlantic. A number of larger rivers discharge their waters into this basin, transporting and depositing the residues of industrialised and agricultural developed regions. Nine riparian countries utilise the mostly sandy coastlines and the ...


Numerical simulation of radar backscattering from oil spills on sea surfaces

Yisok Oh IEEE Antennas and Propagation Society International Symposium. 1998 Digest. Antennas: Gateways to the Global Network. Held in conjunction with: USNC/URSI National Radio Science Meeting (Cat. No.98CH36, 1998

In this paper, a numerical simulation of radar backscattering from oil spills on sea surfaces was performed using the integral equations for a layered medium, the method of moments and Monte Carlo method. The reduction of the radar backscattering coefficient by an oil spill on the sea surface is examined quantitatively for various depths of oil spill and roughness parameters ...


Magnetic tagging

A. Berkowitz; J. Lahut; W. Meiklejohn; C. Van Buren IEEE Transactions on Magnetics, 1975

The technique of magnetic tagging using materials with different Curie temperatures was initially applied to the identification of oil spills. Continued development has demonstrated the feasibility of magnetic tagging of a very wide range of solids and liquids. This versatile technique offers the benefits of economy, sensitivity, stability, large vocabulary, easy recovery, and no environmental hazards. In addition, the detection ...

  • Intelligent Robotics and Autonomous Agents

    This book offers the definitive guide to the theory and practice of disaster robotics. It can serve as an introduction for researchers and technologists, a reference for emergency managers, and a textbook in field robotics. Written by a pioneering researcher in the field who has herself participated in fifteen deployments of robots in disaster response and recovery, the book covers theory and practice, the history of the field, and specific missions. After a broad overview of rescue robotics in the context of emergency informatics, the book provides a chronological summary and formal analysis of the thirty-four documented deployments of robots to disasters that include the 2001 collapse of the World Trade Center, Hurricane Katrina, the 2010 Haiti earthquake, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, the 2011 Japanese earthquake and tsunami, and numerous mining accidents. It then examines disaster robotics in the typical robot modalities of ground, air, and marine, addressing such topics as robot types, missions and tasks, and selection heuristics for each modality. Finally, the book discusses types of fieldwork, providing practical advice on matters that include collecting data and collaborating with emergency professionals. The field of disaster robotics has lacked a comprehensive overview. This book by a leader in the field, offering a unique combination of the theoretical and the practical, fills the gap.
