Summary:The formation of oil-water emulsion often occurs when oil is spilled into the ocean. Oil weighting factor of oil-water emulsion is one of the most important parameters for emergent oil-spill microwave monitoring. A new method is proposed here to evaluate the oil weighting factor based on fractional Weierstrass scattering model. By using the proposed method, we analyze the Uninhabited Aerial Vehicle Synthetic Aperture Radar (UAVSAR) L-band fully polarimetric data acquired during 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster event in the Gulf of Mexico. The result shows that our method performs well in evaluating oil weighting factor of oil-covered area. Copyright 2014 Science China Press and Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg
