Image Processing Algorithms for Identifying the Gulf Oil Spill

Author: Mingrui Zhang

The Gulf of Mexico oil spill between April 20 and September 19, 2010 was the largest offshore spill in U.S. history. Computer algorithms need to be developed to map oil contaminated areas. In this project students are asked to design image processing algorithms to locate and map oil spills on MODIS satellite images and implement the algorithms in Java-based software application. MODIS satellite images are prepared in BMP format for use.
