A method is proposed to detect coastal wastewaters in SAR images. It uses a set of multi-temporal and multi-sensors data, looking for those areas that have frequently a lower backscattering than the surrounding ones. It has been developed and tested on a coastal test site, where in situ data were available. The results show it can be a good support to police forces in identifying areas of possible illegal practices.
