Abstract

In the following pages, some of the most significant activities, developed at the Remote Sensing Group of the University of Catania in Italy over a near 20-year period in the field of remote sensing related applications for environmental control, are reported briefly. The remote sensing approach is proposed as a new modern technique, to control sea pollution, and more in general the marine environment, having proved its effectiveness as a means to integrate, and in a number of applications, to substitute conventional investigation techniques. 1 Introduction The pollution of the marine environment is one of the most serious forms of pollution, because of its effects on the biologi
