Surfactant slicks are widely dispersed throughout the oceans. Current driven features, such as spiral eddies, can be made visible by associated slick patterns. In this study a combined algorithm using the Cloude-Pottier decomposition and the Wishart classifier is presented to produce accurate maps of slick patterns. The study then uses the classified slick patterns to detect spiral eddies. The competing background wave-field is eliminated. Satellite SAR instruments performing wave spectral… CONTINUE READING
