Deng, W.Q.; Zhang, X.; Luo, J.C., and Peng, Y., 2020. South China Sea environment monitoring using remote sensing techniques. In: Malvárez, G. and Navas, F. (eds.), Global Coastal Issues of 2020. Journal of Coastal Research, Special Issue No. 95, pp. 29–33. Coconut Creek (Florida), ISSN 0749-0208.
As the South China Sea has a wide spatial coverage, remote sensing technology with wide monitoring scope and strong timeliness is increasingly becoming an important means to monitor this part of the ocean. The current monitoring trend is to combine different data sources, including common synthetic aperture radar (SAR), optical image and thermal image by image fusion method, and monitor the marine environment jointly by multiple methods, but there still exist many problems. Using a systematic means of meta-analysis, this paper undertook a literature review about the South China Sea Environment Monitoring with Remote Sensing Techniques, mainly analysing related articles in recent ten years. The current researches show several limitations, thus putting forward a comprehensive multi-angle remote sensing monitoring method is important for ecological and environmental protection in South China Sea.
