From the Paper:

"The environmental problems in this area are due mainly to a massive population growth and urbanization in cities near the coast. This has increased industrialization in the area attracting high pollution technologies dealing with the production of energy. The South China Sea has become a dumping ground for vessels that use its waterways and for spills that may occur during ocean voyages. This environmental meltdown can be seen in satellite photo-images of the South China Sea, in which dense closed of smoke haze hang over the landscape."
