When analyzing the results of satellite monitoring of the eastern part of the Black Sea in 2016 and 2017, ScanEx specialists and the Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IO RAS) discovered unprecedentedly large film contaminations of ship origin on the radar images of Sentinel-1A and Sentinel-1B satellites. Quasi-synchronous optical images from
Since the beginning of ice navigation in 2017-2018 icebreakers of Rosmorport carried out more than three thousand vessels
The world’s largest diesel icebreaker fleet FSUE “Rosmorport”, which includes 36 icebreakers of varying capacity, from the beginning of navigation 2017-2018. spent more than three thousand ships in the seaports of Russia. Most of the vessels conducted in the Azov Sea. Since the beginning of winter navigation, their number has reached 1,656. Five icebreakers and
Emergency teams have managed to clean up most of oil slicks in Kuwait coastal waters resulting from a major oil spill near Al-Khafji and to localize the rest of them.
Right now the remote Arctic region’s ice levels are slowly recovering after the summer months bring about all-time lows, allowing for an increasing amount of ships to transit through these relatively untouched waters. The ice retreat means Arctic research and exploration ramps up as nations begin to unearth the resources that lie beneath this frigid
In order to develop a detailed geological understanding of a region, and efficiently target exploration efforts, it is important to bring together modern technologies from a range of disciplines. Increasingly, data acquired from orbiting satellites are supporting upstream activity, providing unique information for areas that are often remote or inaccessible.
Study of hydrological processes using remote sensing methods began in our country in 50-70s of the XX century. This article provides examples of using space images by specialists of the Department of Land Hydrology at the MSU (Moscow State University) for a variety of water bodies and hydrological processes and phenomena.
