Paper Abstract

An automatic procedure has been developed for detection of sea surface fronts on satellite images based on the nature of sea surface fronts. The procedure includes the edge detection, edge tracking and the determination and presentation of sea surface fronts. Examples of detection of the sea surface fronts on synthetic aperture radar images by the procedure are illustrated. The results of the sea surface front detection have been compared with the visual interpretation. It is shown that the procedure works well.
