    With the rapid development of shipping and oil industry chain of Shanghai Port, the risk of marine oil spills has increased. In this paper, the information of the two major oil spill accidents, which occurred near Wusong and Jiuduansha of Shanghai waters in 2012, were analyzed by using the HJ-1 domestic environment satellite, at the same time, validated by the multi- satellite data, such as medium resolution MODIS of ESA and Landsat-5 date, as well as the investigation of our project group at the scene of accident. At first, by applying ratio operation between oil-water sensitive channel bands, the difference between film and background water's spectral reflectance was emphasized. After that, threshold determination method based on image segmentation was used, combined with the spectrum characteristic of heavy diesel oil, the oil spills information was effectively extracted from the suspected oil films area. Putting together, the oil spills location, area and quantity were diagnosed to provide the fundamental analysis data for emergency response work.

  • Active learning for identifying marine oil spills using 10-year RADARSAT data

    The potential of active learning (AL) methods for improving the marine oil spills identification system is exploited using 10-year (2004-2013) RADARSAT data. Six basic AL methods are proposed according to the uncertainty criteria and coupled with the support vector machine (SVM) classifier. As many as 56 commonly used features are used for the classification. The AUC measures are estimated using the 6-fold cross validation technique to achieve bias-reduced evaluation of performance of the AL-based classifiers. The experiment results show that 22 to 74 percent of samples could be reduced for training SVM classifiers with certain destination performance, if the proper AL method such as AL-6 is selected and the criteria of exploitation and exploration could further improve the performance.

  • Segmentation of oil spills in SAR image based on improved CV model

    Extracting the oil spills in SAR images has been challenged by the spatial heterogeneity caused by the speckles. In this paper, we present a novel variational formulation based on the local characteristics of SAR images for CV mode. The proposed method is aimed to solve the segmentation problem caused by SAR image speckles. Compared with the traditional CV model, the performance of the improved CV model is verified by plenty of real airborne SAR images and the experimental results on the real data show its efficiency and accuracy. By presenting various results in the classical threshold segmentation method and Markov random field method respectively, we conclude that the improved CV model is effective and accurate.

  • A datafield — Spectral preprocessing endmember extraction module of hyperspectral unmixing for marine oil spills

    Current methods that use hyperspectral remote sensing imagery in the detection and extraction of marine oil spills are quite popular. Because the mixed pixels exist broadly in the hyperspectral images, the automatic and accurate end member extraction technology plays most essential role in the hyperspectral unmixing. This paper proposed a data field-spectral preprocessing module prior to end member extraction. We compared it with other existing preprocessing algorithms by different image size, different dataset, different end member number, different noises, and combined them with different end member extraction algorithms. It is proved that the proposed algorithm provides accurate end member detection, including anomaly end member, so it has greater accuracy, stronger noise resistance and saves more time. Especially the proposed method is effective in marine oil spill monitoring.

  • Texture Statistics Features of SAR Oil Spills Imagery

    In the process of SAR oil spills imagery segment and detection, texture statistics features play a key role, which are based on the gray level co- occurrence matrix. Some of texture statistics features are illuminated, such as contrast, correlation, energy, homogeneity, entropy, max probability, cluster prominence, dissimilarity and difference entropy. The texture statistics features which are varied with the offset and the direction are analyzed by ENVISAT ASAR oil spills imagery. Energy, cluster prominence and contrast features of sea water are varied quickly with the offset and direction. However, cluster prominence of oil slicks has no sensitivity with the direction except 90 degree. These results can be gain helpful for SAR oil spills imagery detection and classification.

  • A three dimensional transport model for oil spills in coastal waters based on particle approach

    A three dimensional transport model based on particle approach is developed and applied for simulating oil spills at Bohai Sea, China. In such a model, the movement of the particles as the sum of deterministic advection and random diffusion are determined by exploiting the equivalency between the Ito-Fokker- Planck equation and concentration equation. Numerical experiments are further used to demonstrate the simulations of oil spills and to visualize the trajectory of oil pollution in the coastal waters driven by the force of tidal currents of Bohai Sea, China.

  • The Realization of Marine Oil Prediction System upon Oil Spills Behavior Fate Model

    Oil particle model, which is one of the most famous oil spills behavior fate model currently, describe the oil slicks as a certain volume particle. In the model, the deterministic method is employed to simulate oil particle drift process and the random walk method to simulate the diffusion process. This paper discuss the utilization of oil spills fate model in establishing forecast system with revolution of spills drifting and new technology being implemented to improve oil spill predictions in the coastal region. An accident in Dalian region predicted by this system has been shown coincide with the real condition. The oil spills prediction system can be used for spill response and preparedness and has been proven as a useful tool for spills in the coastal region.

  • Detection of oil spills using feature extraction and threshold based segmentation techniques

    Satellite images can improve the possibilities for the detection of oil spills as they cover large areas and offer an economical and easier way of continuous coast areas patrolling. There are many common techniques to detect dark formations on the SAR images. This paper mainly focuses on method with spot feature extraction and global thresholding. The main approach used in this paper is detecting the dark spots, using local and global threshold algorithms. For each dark spot, a number of features are calculated in order to classify the slick as either oil or other possible geographical or natural components of water. The proposed threshold algorithm, initially analyzes the SAR images, and then assigns a probability to the dark spot to indicate whether it is an oil spill or look alike.
