Passive Optical Remote Sensing of the Sea at the I.R.O.E. - C.N.R.
This paper describes two different activities carried out at the IROE- CNR on the remote sensing of the sea. The first activity deals with the analysis of the potential of infrared scanners in the real-time monitoring of oil spills over the sea surface and of thermal discontinuities of the sea, particularly in coastal waters. The IROE participated to some field experiments in the last years in the North Sea (Archimedes 83), in the Marano lagoon (November 83, May 85), and in the Northern Adriatic Sea (Adria 84) successfuly testing the ability of small I.R. scanners in the real-time identification of oil spills and thermal discontinuities (1,2,3). The most suitable image processing techniques were also investigated. The second activity concerns the design and construction of an high-resolution spectrometer for the remote sensing of the sea surface in the visible region of the spectrum. The first test of this spectrometer was done during the Adria 84 (3) experiment.
