Abstract:

The applicability of remote sensing techniques to the detection of oil films on water is furnished. Short reviews of various imaging techniques and their feasibility as oil film detectors are provided. The results of Coast Guard sponsored research to develop characteristics signatures for sensors operating in the UV to microwave of the electromagnetic spectrum are given. Field test results of existing passive and active sensors obtained from oil spill overflights is presented. Author
