PROJECT TITLE :
Analysis of the Polarimetric SAR Scattering Properties of Oil-Covered Waters
An analysis of the polarimetric scattering properties of oil-coated waters is conducted using the classic Poincaré ellipticity parameter chi (χ) and therefore the degree of polarization (m) from the Stokes parameters of hybrid polarized mode artificial aperture radar (SAR). Oil spills scale back m for all four cases thought of during this study. However, for the natural oil seep case thought-about, χ has a modification in signs, comparing oil-coated waters with the “clean” ocean surface. The χ sign reversal is basic for “sign difference oil spill detection strategies.” However, a problem is that the oil spill connected to the deep water horizon (DWH) disaster did not exhibit a reversal in χ signs, comparing the “clean” ocean surface to the realm contaminated by crude oil. The scattering mechanism related to the oil seep is totally different from that of the DWH oil spill; the previous is dominated with even bounce scattering and also the latter is dominated by Bragg scattering, just like that of the clean oil-free ocean surface, within the imaging space.
