Paper Abstract

In this paper, an efficient sea surface generation is described for the fast and realistic simulation of the infrared emissivity and reflectivity of clean and contaminated seas. The clean sea surface is modelled by the Elfouhaily et al. spectrum model. For describing the surface damping due to the oil film at the sea surface, the model of local balance (MLB) is used. Thus, these surface models are used as the basis for calculating the emissivity and reflectivity. The numerical efficient computation is tested by comparison with the reference statistical computation for its validation.
