Paper Abstract

This paper poses two important objectives of environmental monitoring and quality assessment of surface waters and describes approaches to their solution using multispectral optoelectronic space platforms. The first objective is closely connected with oil contamination of the water surface. This problem brings forward the issue of development of methods for remote detecting of oil spills based on data received from aerospace remote sensing platforms. An opportunity to improve the efficiency of oil contamination diagnostics at observation from the space platform at different angles is considered. This concept was provoked by the approaching launch of a French-Japanese `Polder' system installed onboard the ADEOS satellite. The unique feature of this optoelectronic system is the ability to measure reflectivity of the underlying surface in the visible wavelengths at different viewing angles. The second objective refers to remote methods for determining the primary bio-productivity of sea waters by spectro- radiometric evaluations of the intensity of the radiation rising from below the `water-atmosphere' boundary and transformed in the real aerosol-molecular atmosphere.
