  • Marine Pollution Monitoring in China

    Pollution monitoring in China in the last fifteen years are briefly reviewed. From 1972, three monitoring programs have been carried out so far. The first is so called pre-investigation; the second is baseline investigation; the third is regular monitoring. They play important roles in making progress in our understanding of pollution conditions in China Seas, designing national environment projects and making decisions for national contructions. Three gaps of knowledge seem especially striking. With the growth of population and the development of industry and agriculture, Environmental problem has prompted global concerns. Since 1970, our Government has shown great concern for environmental pollution. In early 1970s under pre-Premier Zhou's advocating, we took the first step on environmental protection. One of the basic works is environmental pollution monitoring.

  • Trajectory Optimization for Ship Collision Avoidance System Using Genetic Algorithm

    The safety of ships oceangoing or navigating in inland waterways has been increasingly concerned because it may cause great losses in human life and property and bring environmental pollution. Ship collision avoidance system is expected to reduce such maritime accident. How to find an optimum trajectory is crucial for the success of a ship collision avoidance system. As the basis of ship collision avoidance system, a mathematical model of ship maneuvering motion is first described. Then, optimization approach based on genetic algorithm is applied to seek the ship trajectory considering different navigational constraint conditions of a ship in inland waterways. In this approach, a fitness function is used to model the constraints including target ship and obstacles. The optimal results show that the present method is efficient and can be further applied to the ship-maneuvering simulator.

  • A Marine Pollutant Fates and Effects Model System: Application to the New York Bight

    A set of physical, chemical, and biological numerical models has been coupled to form a wholistic marine pollution hazard assessment tool. This paper presents an application of the model system to the New York Bight Apex. PCB is used as a tracer to demonstrate the system's ability to compute the dynamic mass balance of a pollutant in the physical system. Uncertainties in loading rates and model parameters make definitive model validation difficult at the present stage of model system development.

  • Numerical Simulation of Tidal Current for Combined Dilution and Diffusion of Effluent Sewage at Radial Sandbank in Northern Jiangsu Province

    A two-dimensional mathematical model for the simulation of tidal current for combined dilution and diffusion of effluent sewage was proposed. The dilution and diffusion behavior of near field and far field were studied. An orthogonal curvilinear coordinate system is used, greatly increasing model efficiency in treating irregularly shaped coastlines and in meeting requirements for high resolution at desired locations. The computed hydrodynamic field consistently supports the observed short-term data. A comparison of the behavior for the dilution and diffusion was made between 3000 m<sup>3</sup>/h and 5400 m <sup>3</sup>/h of the two typical planned discharges. The far field for dilution and diffusion of sewage resulted from the planned discharge of the spring tide shows that wastewater is mixed with current over a large area. The area covered by the pollutant patch (Such as defined by the dilute contour of 100) is large, whereas the dilute contour of 20 still encloses the vicinity of outfalls.

  • Operational satellite monitoring of oil spill pollution in the southeastern Baltic Sea

    Shipping activities in the Baltic Sea, including oil transport and oil handled in harbors, have a number of negative impacts on the marine environment and coastal zone. Oil spills cause the contamination of seawater, shores, and beaches, which may persist for several months and represent a threat to marine resources. One of the main tasks in the ecological monitoring of the Baltic Sea is an operational satellite and aerial detection of oil spillages, determination of their characteristics, establishment of the pollution sources and forecast of probable trajectories of the oil spill transport. In June 2003 LUKOIL-Kaliningradmorneft initiated a pilot project, aimed to the complex monitoring of the southeastern Baltic Sea, in connection with a beginning of oil production at continental shelf of Russia in March 2004. Since June 2004 the operational monitoring was performed on the base of daily satellite remote sensing (AVHRR NOAA, MODIS, TOPEX/Poseidon, Jason-1, ENVISAT ASAR imagery) of SST, sea level, chlorophyll concentration, mesoscale dynamics, wind and waves, and oil spills. 110 oil spills have been detected in the time period between June 2004 and March 2005. Some of the results of a complex approach to the ongoing monitoring of the southeastern Baltic Sea devoted, basically, to the oil spills detection by means of ASAR ENVISAT data and forecast of probable trajectories of the oil spill transport based on the interactive numerical model Seatrack Web are discussed.

  • Information entropy based reduct searching algorithm

    In this paper, a new reduct searching algorithm is proposed to benefit the applications of rough sets theory. The information entropy is introduced to the reduct searching algorithm, so that indeterministic causalities among attributes can be found and the reduct sensitivity to noise, occurring unavoidably when the approximation quality function /spl gamma/ is applied, can be removed. The theoretical analysis and an illustrated example show that the rule set induced by this algorithm uses less attributes than that by algorithms based on the rough set /spl gamma/ function. At the same time, the new algorithm gives a larger rule set coverage, especially when the data are polluted by noise or the causalities among the attributes are indeterministic. In practice, noise pollution of data and indeterministic causalities are usual situations, so this algorithm is more applicable than those based on the rough sets /spl gamma/ function.

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

    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 (SADBT) algorithm eliminates the noise and pseudo edge in candidate edge, and makes edge locate more accurately and continuously. SADBT is that the whole image is divided into a number of subimages, and according to the characteristics of the global edge gradient, combined with the edge gradient information of each sub-image to generate dynamic threshold adaptively. The algorithm improves the degree of automation of edge detection, suppresses the noise and the formation of pseudo-edge effectively. At last the paper gives the results of image processing by the algorithm mentioned above and other algorithms. By comparison, it's concluded that the processing results by the algorithm suggested in this paper are more legible, continuous and effective. As to the oil-infrared image with more noises, the effect of edge detection is also ideal.

  • Sand-Dust Aerosol's Impact on Urban Environment in Xinjiang

    Xinjiang is the emission region of sand-dust aerosol as well as the region suffering the severest damage from sand-dust aerosol, whose urban environment especially suffers greater impact from the particles of sand-dust aerosol. The impact on urban environment in Xinjiang is mainly attributed to the sand-dust weather in the multiple sand-dust seasons. The variation trend is in conformity with that of the sand-dust weather. Upon the occurrence of the sand-dust weather, PM10 of the city increases sharply. The sand-dust aerosol turns into the most important pollutant. In the multiple sand-dust seasons, the sand-dust aerosol is the primary pollutant. In the non-heating season, the content percentage of the sand-dust aerosol in the pollutants of Crumbs reaches up to 37% and PM10 during the sand-dust weather period changes obviously, indicating the sand-dust weather has great impact on the atmosphere quality of Xinjiang.
