Here is a review of the current potential of Earth Observations that devotes particular attention to the challenges posed by the European Seas. The assessment of surface parameters by means of passive techniques a which measure reflected visible and near-infrared sunlight, or surface emissions in the thermal infrared or microwave spectral regions a is addressed. Active techniques a which use transmitted impulses of visible or microwave radiation a are covered as well.Automatic detection of oil spills has proven to be an interesting complement to manual detection. ... Experimental results show that automatic algorithms can perform compaoil spills, false alarm ratio, and they can also speed up the image analysis ... Oil pollution caused by large accidents like the Prestige event in 2002 capture many headlines, but the majority of the oil pollution cases are caused by anbsp;...
