A brief overview of studies on the problem of marine slicks and their radar signatures carried out at the Institute of Applied Physics RAS is given. Synthetic aperture radar (SAR) slick imagery and physical mechanisms of slick formation due to different oceanic processes are considered, including slicks due to oceanic internal waves, non uniform coastal currents, algae bloom. Results of field studies slicks associated with these processes, and theoretical analysis of physical mechanisms of the slicks in SAR imagery are presented.
