There is a growing need for better monitoring and managing of the marine coastal zone environment. The parameters and features most frequently required for their relevance and importance include: (a) surface waves and high-resolution wind fields; (b) surface current strength and variability; and (c) identification and location of pollutant material including toxic algae bloom and oil spill. Remote sensing observations play a valuable role in this context. Mature algorithms and synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging models are integrated and supplemented by complementary thermal and visible sensor data. This paper outlines how a system like MARSAIS can guide and help non-experts in exploring SAR imaging data for coastal ocean monitoring.
