The purpose of this thesis is to examine the present data collected and to evaluate its usage in respect to water pollution detection by Coast Guard aircraft patrols. It was found that, in general, more detailed and specification information is needed about the patrols. A system for collecting this new data and linking it to the present Pollution Incident Reporting System data base is proposed. The proposed system would allow evaluation of patrols at more specific areas and levels instead of the present district, coast and nationwide levels. Policy decisions could then be more specifically oriented to an area andor the individual air station.
