This dataset includes original oil volume product download from USGS, post processing file to remove noise and then classified to different oil thickness class file. All the afterward analysis and statistics are based on the classified oil thickness class file. Ascii files of oil slicks' area and length.
This dataset was used to generate oil slick morphology parameters. By knowing the oil slick size and the percentage occupation of oil slick in a simulated remote sensing pixel, we were attempting to figure out the remote sensor spatial resolution that is needed to detect oil distribution and discriminate oil thickness.
