             abstract = "In this paper, a review of Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR)-based 
                         techniques, for oil slick at sea observation is proposed, focusing 
                         in particular on polarimetric approaches. In fact, marine oil 
                         pollution monitoring is a topic of great applicative and 
                         scientific relevance and in such a context, among all remote 
                         sensing sensors, SAR represents a fundamental tool due to its 
                         almost all-weather and all-day imaging capability, providing 
                         synoptic maps of the observed scene with a fine spatial resolution 
                         and a dense revisit time. Although traditionally SAR-based 
                         techniques for oil pollution observation rely on automatic or 
                         partially supervised classifiers applyed on single-polarization 
                         SAR imagery and based on image processing algorithms, in the last 
                         decade the growing number of fully and partially polarimetric data 
                         available from several polarimetric SAR sensors offered an 
                         unprecedented amount of physical information about the scattering 
                         mechanisms ruling the interaction between the observed scene and 
                         the SAR illumination. Hence, a set of polarimetric approaches that 
                         exploit the oil-covered sea surface departure from Bragg 
                         scattering, which characterizes the scattering from a slightly 
                         rough surface as the slick-free ocean one, have been developed. 
                         Polarimetric SAR observations represent a significant improvement 
                         allowing to distinguish oil slicks from look-alikes (low-wind 
                         areas, biogenic films, etc.) and to avoid or reduce the need of 
                         trained personnel and external information (optical and 
                         scatterometer data) required for single polarization SAR-based
