APPLICATION OF SPECTROMETRIC AND POLARIZATION TECHNIQUES FOR REMOTE SENSING OF OIL ON SEA WATERS

The paper presents the results of the investigations to obtain complex data on the optical properties of the sea surface polluted by an oil film, and work out recommendations for remote sensing. The apparatus installed on-board a helicopter included a hand-held spectrograph, a polarimeter and two cameras operating in four spectral regions. Both the spectrograph and cameras are provided with polarization attachments. Data have been obtained on spectral brightness distribution and the degree of polarization of the radiative flux at different heading angles relative to the sun and at various viewing angles for the cases of the clean and polluted sea surface.
