A Simple Tool for Automatic Extraction of Moroccan Coastal Upwelling from Sea Surface Temperature Images

Abstract : This work aims at automatically identify and ex- tract the region covered by the upwelling waters in the costal ocean of Morocco using the well known region-growing segmen- tation algorithm. The later consists in coarse segmentation of upwelling area which characterized by cold and usually nutrient- rich water near the coast. The complete system has been validated by an oceanographer over a database of 30 Sea Surface Tem- perature (SST) satellite images of the year 2007 obtained from Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR) sensor onboard NOAA-18 satellite serie, demonstrating its capability and effectiveness to reproduce the shape of upwelling area.
