The Chinese have some 400 Naval Vessels that operate out of 9-major ports, including 65 submarines. The US Navy once had some 600 Navy Ships, but now only has 280 ships. In the recent past, China has been building up its Naval Fleet, and it appears the Treasure Fleet sails again. China now has the largest Navy in the World.
China's somewhat bizarre behavior and recent hostile activities towards the United States Navy recently has many analysts wondering exactly what are they up too. And how on Earth can we keep track of their secretive intentions as their Navy grows in size to 500, 750 or even 1000 vessels in the next decade?
One though is to track these high pollutant emission ships by their pollution signatures either by satellite or sensor. Interestingly enough the Chinese warships leave a huge amount of emission behind that is really easy to see, and it is unique due to the fuel they use to any other pollutant by any other vessel of any other nation.
