Synthetic Aperture Radar for Oil Spill Observation
Distinguished Lecture by Dr. Maurizio Migliaccio
Organizer: Oceanic Engineering Chapter
Saturday, April 23rd, 9:00 am. Save the date, the details are to be defined.
Marine oil pollution monitoring is a topic of great applicative and scientific relevance. The use of remotely sensed measurements is of special interest and, in particular, the SAR because of its almost all-weather and all-day imaging capability at fine spatial resolution is the most effective tool. Conventional single-polarization SAR oil spill monitoring techniques are limited in their capability to detect oil slicks since they strongly rely on suitable thresholds, training samples, and ancillary information.
Maurizio Migliaccio (M’91-SM’00-F’17) is a Full Professor of Electromagnetics at Università di Napoli Parthenope (Italy) and was an Affiliated Full Professor at NOVA Southeastern University, Fort Lauderdale, FL (USA). He has been teaching Microwave Remote Sensing since 1994.
