This dataset contains Rayleigh corrected reflectance data from 19 MODIS images collected between April and July 2010, along with their corresponding maps of surface oil volume, maps of relative oil thickness of different classes, and maps of probability distributions of different thicknesses. Surface oil was estimated by spatially scaling up AVIRIS observations to synoptic MODIS measurements, which were the used to derived oil classification and probability maps.
To estimate the oil present at the ocean surface using different methods.
