Synthetic Aperture Radar Imaging Mechanism for Oil Spills delivers the critical tool needed to understand the latest technology in radar imaging of oil spills, particularly microwave radar as a main source to understand analysis and applications in the field of marine pollution. Filling the gap between modern physics quantum theory and applications of radar imaging of oil spills, this reference is packed with technical details associated with the potentiality of synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and the key methods used to extract the value-added information necessary, such as location, size, perimeter and chemical details of the oil slick from SAR measurements. Rounding out with practical simulation trajectory movements of oil spills using radar images, this book brings an effective new source of technology and applications for today’s oil and marine pollution engineers.

Key Features

  • Bridges the gap between theory and application of the techniques involving oil spill monitoring
  • Helps readers understand a new approach to four-dimensional automatic detection
  • Provides advanced knowledge on image processing based on intelligent learning machine algorithms and new techniques for detection, such as quantum and multi-objective algorithms

    Wonderfull Book

    Oh Oh, Prof. Marghany can be called as little Einstein .

  • Chen w. Thu Aug 01 2019

    Nobel work

    It is a Nobel book.

  • Chen w. Wed Jul 24 2019

    Excellent work

    Oh it fantastic, we are interested to buy this great book. The author has a wide range of imaging to correlate quantum with oil spill and radar signal processing.

  • Prof. H. Mon Jun 17 2019


    It seems as interested book. Author carries all of us to era of quantum in radar applications to oil spill pollution. Amazing to read about 4-D of oil spill imaging in SAR data. It is a great way of thinking.
