Polarization Dependence of Radar Contrast for Sea Surface Oil Slicks

  title={Polarization Dependence of Radar Contrast for Sea Surface Oil Slicks},
  author={I. Fuks and V. U. Zavorotny},
  journal={2007 IEEE Radar Conference},
The polarization dependence of microwave radar image contrast between clean sea and oil slicks is investigated in the framework of a two-scale scattering model. The Cox & Munk large-scale slope probability density function (PDF) is used for a clean sea surface and for the oil slicks along with the Elfouhaily power spectrum of sea roughness. The sea roughness modification in the slicks is modeled by cutting off the power spectrum at a sea wavelength of an order of several decimeters and by… CONTINUE READING
