Study on oil spills in the North Sea forties field observed in TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X imagery

Tong Jia; Xiao-Ming Li; Domenico Velotto 2016 IEEE International Geoscience and Remote Sensing Symposium (IGARSS), 2016

In this study, we focus on the investigations of oil slicks observed by TerraSAR-X and TanDEM-X operating over the drilling platforms in Forties oil field, the largest one in the North Sea. Previous researches indicate that oil spills observed by consecutive SAR images represent the same leaks, but in this paper, we presented four cases which suggest completely different situations ...


The Edge Detection of Oil Spills Image Using Self-Adaptive Dynamic Block Threshold Algorithm Based on Non-Maximal Suppression

Yu Jing; Jubai An; Li Li 2009 2nd International Congress on Image and Signal Processing, 2009

Edge detection technology of oil spills image on the sea is one of most key technologies to monitor oil spills on the sea. This paper presents a novel method to detect edge of oil spills image on the sea. The algorithm is composed of two parts: nonmaximal suppression realizes candidate edge detection of oil spills image, self-adaptive dynamic block threshold ...


Oil spill detection using a coastal high-resolution radar

Fabrizio Santi; Pierfrancesco Lombardo; Debora Pastina 2011 IEEE RadarCon (RADAR), 2011

In this work we propose a new GLRT technique to detect oil spills dipping into a non Gaussian clutter using a coastal (VTS) radar with high resolution and working in X band. Analyzing a real dataset stored by the IPIX radar in Canada, we show that a non-coherent integration of the received pulses in the slow time domain, particularly over ...


Comparative analysis of opportunistic routing protocols for underwater acoustic sensor networks

Varun G. Menon; P. M. Joe Prathap 2016 International Conference on Emerging Technological Trends (ICETT), 2016

Underwater wireless sensor networks have received increased attention in recent years due to its numerous applications in oil spills detection, ocean exploration, submarine detection and disaster avoidance. All these applications make use of a number of sensor nodes deployed in different depths in the ocean for data collection and communication. Efficient communication in the network of sensor nodes requires a ...


Oil Spills Detection and Monitoring Using Airborn Thermal Infrared Remote Sensing in Dalian Xingang Oil Pipeline Explosion

Peng Chen; Ying Li; Guoxin Lan; Bingxin Liu; Hui Zhou 2012 2nd International Conference on Remote Sensing, Environment and Transportation Engineering, 2012

In the accident of Dalian Xingang oil pipeline explosion, on July 16th 2010, the 3.0-5.0μm bands thermal infrared sensor, which was equipped in the rescue helicopters from the Ministry of Transportation, was successfully applied to oil spills monitoring and detection in accident waters. By abstracting oil/water contrast from the information collected within specific distances far from the sensor position, this ...

  • Glossary

    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.
