Analysis of Hyperspectral Imagery for Oil Spill Detection Using SAM Unmixing Algorithm Techniques

Ahmad Keshavarz; Seyed Mohammad Karim Hashemizadeh

Volume 6, Issue 2 , April 2017, Pages 1-16

  Oil spill is one of major marine environmental challenges. The main impacts of this phenomenon are preventing light transmission into the deep water and oxygen absorption, which can disturb the photosynthesis process of water plants. In this research, we utilize SpecTIR airborne sensor data to extract ...  Read More
