About Oil Spill Detection System in the Arabian Gulf Region: An Azure Machine-Learning Approach
Locating oil spills is a crucial portion of an effective marine contamination administration. In this project, we address the issue of oil spillage location exposure within the Arabian Gulf region, by leveraging a Machine-Learning (ML) workflow on a cloud-based computing platform: Microsoft Azure Machine-Learning Service (Custom Vision). Our workflow comprises a virtual machine, a database, and four modules (an Information Collection Module, a Discovery Show, an Application Module, and a Choice Module). The adequacy of the proposed workflow is assessed on Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) imagery of the targeted region. Qualitative and quantitative analysis show that the proposed algorithm can detect oil spill occurrence with an accuracy of 90.5%.
