In this study a polarimetric approach is for the first time developed and applied to X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) data for sea oil slick observation. Following this an electromagnetic model which, based on the Co-polarized Phase Difference (CPD), allows describing the slick-free and slick-covered sea surface scattering is proposed. Single Look Complex (SSC) TerraSAR-X (TSX) data, gathered in dual polarimetric mode, in which both certified oil slicks and look-alikes are present, are analyzed. Several experiments are shown here and discussed in detail.
