Paper Abstract

Oil spills are seriously affecting the marine ecosystem. In order to implement an emergency in case of oil spills, it is necessary to monitor oil spill using remote sensing. Spectral measurements are undertaken for several oil types in 1998 and 1999. Based on the oil spectral characteristics, this study demonstrates how MODIS (Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer) can monitor oil spills in an oil spill event occurred near Dalian in North China Sea. The study shows that MODIS has possessed some hyperspectral characteristics, which improve the capability of oil spill monitoring.
