  • Ocean remote sensing data predicts trajectory of oil spill an analytical model for SAR polarimetric scattering matrix

    The ocean surface is part of the upper ocean which directly interacts with the overlying atmosphere and sea ice. Once oil spill happened due to an accident such as the oil rig pipe leaking and exploring, it would be unimaginable disaster to the oceanic environment, especially in the coastal area. If we can predict the direction along which the oil films floats over the marginal sea surface, the damage would be controlled within a pre-knowledge level. Under these knowledge, we analysed the polarimetric SAR (Synthetic Aperture Radar) data with an analytical model to separate backscattered contributions by different sea surface scatterers. Furthermore, it provides a possible prediction of the local wind direction by using the separated backscattered signal. With this direction, it is ready to predict the direction of oil film's floating.

  • Application of the ICF Coherence Time Method for Ocean Remote Sensing Using Digital Communication Satellite Signals

    This paper applies an ocean remote sensing method, first developed for reflected Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS-R) signals, to reflected digital communication satellite signals. The fundamental observation is the time series of the Interferometric Complex Field (ICF) of the reflected signal. A relationship is derived between the coherence time of the ICF time series and the significant wave height (SWH) and mean wave period (MWP) of the ocean. Direct and reflected signals from the S-band satellite transmissions providing the commercial XM radio service were recorded at Platform Harvest over a 65-day period. In situ measurements from a nearby buoy were used to calibrate this measurement by determining coefficients of a semi-empirical model. SWH retrievals using this model on 1 min of reflected signal observations were found to have a standard deviation of 0.38 m over the range from 1 to 4.5 m. An error analysis was done to show that the primary contribution to this error was uncertainty in the relationship between MWP and SWH, and to quantify the retrieval error from different forward models.

  • GSOC's Scatterometry GNSS receiver for ocean remote sensing: Design and initial results

    The department of Space Flight Technology at the DLR's German Space Operations Center (GSOC) is currently developing a new Reflectometry/Scatterometry GNSS receiver for ocean remote sensing. This new instrument is being designed to be used in several conditions ranging from terrestrial applications to spaceborne GNSS experiments. One of its key features is the ability to compute at different scales a Delay Doppler Map (through time multiplexing the Doppler space) on one reflection event at a time using a 3×3 fully digitally steerable antenna array. Another feature is to perform digital beamforming of the incoming downconverted digitized GPS signal after IF carrier and C/A demodulation. This significantly reduces the technical requirements and costs of the analog RF front-end chain and the computation bandwidth at the FPGA respectively. A prototype version of this Scatterometry GNSSR receiver is being developed as a proof of concept, using the Namuru II board as development platform.

  • Robot monitoring system of ocean remote sensing satellite receiving station

    Security is a basic need of system and it is one of core technology of remote controlled system.

Robot acquires real-time image of controlled system and operates it; cloud computing system build visual decision subsystem to identify the target using wavelet transform algorithm, neural network algorithm and knowledge database of features video of specific environmental; using remote terminal administrator observes the controlled system through its scene simulator and control robot to operate it remotely. Using technology of the pseudo-random number password, technology of mutual authentication to prevent cloning site, technology of conversion between the image of controlled system and its status code and technology of conversion between operation codes and operation instructions, the security strength of the robot monitoring system is improved greatly.

  • Ground-based microwave radiometer design and real-time calibration for ocean remote sensing

    A multi-frequency, ground-based microwave radiometer (MWR) for ocean remote sensing has been designed and developed in this paper. It will be used on the offshore oil platform and provide atmospheric soundings of physical temperature and liquid water vapor using channels in the oxygen resonance band (6.8GHz) and water vapor resonance band (23.8GHz). The other channels at 10.7GHz, 18.7GHz and 37GHz are used as atmospheric windows, each with dual polarization. The measurements at various combinations of these frequencies and polarization will obtain many geophysical parameters such as the sea- surface temperature, near-surface wind speed, sea ice types and so on. The multi-frequency microwave radiometer is a five frequencies, ten channels and linear polarization system. The receiver is working at total-power mode with super heterodyne style. And the data processing and system control unit is used of operating mode control, data acquisition and digitizing, automatic gain control, state control of the radiometer system and communication with the remote computer system by asynchronous serial interface. Besides, an absolute calibration and a quasi-real-time calibration method used in the multi-frequency MWR are presented and the relative result is also discussed, which guaranteed the high resolution of the multi-frequency microwave radiometer system.

  • Coastline automatic detection based on high resolution SAR images

    The reclamation in coastal areas has been playing an increasingly important role in expanding living space, which has aroused wild public concerns. With the increasing number of remote sensing images, the need to automatically achieve the precise coastline reflecting the status of reclamation has never been so urgent as it is now. While it is difficult to search the accurate coastline, because of the existence of speckle noises in Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) images. A novel geometric active contour model (GACM) is proposed in this paper, which can adjust adaptively according to the equivalent number of looks (ENL) of each SAR image. The experiments of Jizhou gulf with different kinds of high-resolution remote sensing images demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed GACM algorithm.

  • Oil Spill Detection by MODIS Images using Fuzzy Cluster and Texture Feature Extraction

    Oil spills in the ocean are one of major environmental concerns, especially in the coastal waters. Multispectral satellite sensors, such as AVHRR, MODIS and MERIS, have been used to detect oil spills which often exhibit a differing spectral reflectance than the surrounding waters. Some simple image processing methods, such as contrast enhancement, have been applied to remote sensing images to delineate the oil spills. But these methods often require subjective judgment from an operator and can not be used in an automatic manner, which is desirable when there is no a priori knowledge of occurrence or the spectral attributes of spills. In this study, we used a fuzzy C-means (FCM) cluster algorithm with a texture feature analysis to detect oil spill using MODIS images. The MODIS images of one incident, which happened near the new port of Dalian in Northeast China's Liaoning Province on April 3, 2005, were analyzed and the results proved the efficiency of algorithm. However, in very near shore regions, delineation of water and oil boundary is noisy due to a similar spectral signature across land-water boundary.

  • Investigation of perturbing action of atmospheric and internal oceanic processes on the waved sea surface using ocean remote sensing data

    Results of long-term remote sensing experiments performed between 1977-1992 by the Space Research Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences in the northwestern Pacific and on the continental shelf off the eastern coast of the USA are presented. They have revealed dramatic differences in radar images of the ocean taken at the two polarizations. It appears that vertically (VV) polarized images are most sensitive to surface wind stress, while horizontally polarized ones appear to detect mainly specular point reflectors, even at very large incidence angles. Hence VV-polarization often senses atmospheric effects in the planetary boundary layer, while HH-polarization is sensitive to processes in the sea itself. This will lead to the classification and identification of sources of radar signal backscatter modulation according to their atmospheric or oceanic origin.
