This paper introduces a new analysis technique, using the fractionally integrated autoregressive-moving average (FARIMA) model, to distinguish between low-wind and oil slick areas in high-resolution sea synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery. The method deals with the estimation of the fractional differencing and autoregressive-moving average parameters of the mean radial power spectral density of sea SAR images. The algorithm is applied and validated on dark areas corresponding to oil slicks, oil spills, and low-wind sea surface anomalies in European Remote Sensing 1 and 2 Precision Images of the Mediterranean Sea, North Sea, and Atlantic Ocean.
