                         radar data (PolSAR) was tested to evaluate its potential to 
                         discriminate different types of oil slicks at sea surface. This 
                         classifier uses a supervised approach to compare stochastic 
                         distances between complex Wishart distributions and hypothesis 
                         tests to associate confidence levels to the classification 
                         results. The preliminary results using the Battacharyya distance 
                         were promising, returning an overall accuracy of 90.61% at a 
                         significance level of 5%. Future works may compare the performance 
                         of different stochastic distances, together with the insertion of 
                         polarimetric features to improve the oil slicks classification.",
