Abstract
The paper deals with surface slicks, their nature and the reasons of formation in the context of remote detection and investigation of dynamic processes in the ocean, as well as at the ocean-atmosphere system. We introduce a simple formalism of formation of contrasts between slick and free sea surface, which takes into account water leaving radiance and qualitatively explains the results of field measurements. The paper gives the results of experimental studies on the registration of slick spots on the surface of coastal waters. Together with the proposed simplified formalism we provide optimal conditions for registration of contrasts between the slick and the free sea surface: the measurement of contrast of P component of the reflected radiation should be taken at angles close to the horizon.
