Nunziata F, Marino A & Velotto D (2019) Editorial for the Special Issue "Remote Sensing of Target Detection in Marine Environment". Remote Sensing, 11 (14), Art. No.: 1689. https://doi.org/10.3390/rs11141689
First paragraph: Remote sensing is a powerful tool used to obtain an unprecedented amount of information about the ocean from a distance, usually from satellites or aircrafts. Measurements collected by active and passive remote sensing instruments can be used for both marine and maritime applications. They allow monitoring of vast areas of the Earth that are difficult to access and sample using traditional methods. Within this context, the observation of targets at sea, e.g.; man-made targets (ships or oil/gas rigs/platforms and wind turbines) and natural targets (icebergs, surfactants, etc.) is nowadays a very hot-topic in the field of global monitoring of environment and security.
