Oil spills on the European waters are observed relatively often. Pollution due accidental and deliberate oil spill from ships and rigs represents a serious threat to the marine and coastal environment. Operational oil spill monitoring such as ‘CleanSeaNet’ hosted by European Maritime Safety Agency (EMSA) is currently using SAR based maritime surveillance for oil spill and ship detection. A total of 2069 potential spills were reported by EMSA in 2012 reduced from 3311 reported spill in 2008. Primarily, conventional wide swath mode Xband (2.4–3.75 cm) and C-band (3.75–7.5 cm) SAR products have been used for operational purpose due to its large coverage and cost effectiveness. However this wide swath SAR images affected by reduced backscatter from near range to far range and normalization process on those images is highly desirable. Different approaches to radiometrically normalise SAR images are investigated and implemented.
