Description 
Summary

The Water sampling is made at depth of one meter. The measurement and analysis cover several parameters: physical, chemical and indicators of anthropogenic pollution. In parallel to this work, satellite data (satellite imagery) is acquired for the same place and time of sampling from different satellites. These data will be processed. This work has a dual purpose. One is to study the properties of water and its quality assessment with determination of pollution sources. The second is the correlation of the sea water data with those of satellite (satellite imagery processed) by software developed and designed for that purpose. This technique allows for a more complete pollution picture and to make prospecting and recognition of that pollution at a larger scale.
