Abstract

The paper proposes an approach to assessing the humidity within the acid storage tank of the “Crimean Titan” plant based on the water index MDNWI, calculated using Sentinel-2 multispectral images as one of the likely causes of chemical pollution, which was observed at the end of August 2018.
