Pectin-ZnO nanocomposite was prepared in the aqueous solution condition at room temperature. The Fourier transform infrared, X-ray diffraction, and transmission electron microscope (TEM) measurements confirmed the nanoscaled structure of pectin-ZnO composite. According to the TEM observation, the average composite granules size was about 150 nm and the(More)
Oil spills in the ocean are one of major environmental concerns, especially in the costal waters. Many satellite sensors, including optical sensors and microwave sensors, have been used to detect oil spills which often exhibit different feature in the satellite images compared with the surrounding waters. In this study, we used texture feature analysis to(More)
We estimate two essential sea ice parameters—namely, sea ice concentration (SIC) and sea ice thickness (SIT)—for the Bohai Sea using a combination of a thermodynamic sea ice model and Earth observation (EO) data from synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and microwave radiometer. We compare the SIC and SIT estimation results with in-situ measurements conducted in(More)
A sea ice detection algorithm based on Fisher's linear discriminant analysis is developed to segment sea ice and open water for the Ku-band scatterometer onboard the China's Hai Yang 2A Satellite (HY-2A/SCAT). Residual classification errors are reduced through image erosion/dilation techniques and sea ice growth/retreat constraint methods. The arctic(More)
