OIL SPILL REMOTE SENSING: CHAPTER 1 This is the first chapter in series of articles that goes into the remote sensing of oil spills. This series will cover oil spill remote sensing step by step and will present the latest in knowledge on the topic.

Remote-sensing for oil spills is covered in this series. The report describes a field experiment which evaluated the remote sensing of hydrocarbon concentrations in the dispersing cloud of gas produced by a spill of LNG using a. The authors measured α for a suite of compounds and different sizes of spill.

They found that α can be estimated for hydrocarbons containing only C, H, and O with the equation: α= VP+ SA/Vol, where VP is the vapor pressure of the liquid and SA/Vol is the surface area to volume ratio. CHAPTER 2. REMOTE SENSING TO DETECT ILLEGAL DISCHARGES 13 A historical introduction 13 Types of satellites used to detect oil discharges 14 Current state of remote sensing technologies 16 Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) 17 Side-Looking Airborne Radar (SLAR) 18 Infrared and Ultraviolet Scanner (IR/UV) Detecting cancer at an early stage of disease progression promises better treatment outcomes and longer lifespans for cancer survivors.

Research has been directed towards the development of accessible and highly sensitive cancer diagnostic tools, many of which rely on protein biomarkers and biomarker panels which are overexpressed in body fluids and associated with different types of cancer.

- Analysis, Detection, and Remote Sensing of Oil Spills Special instruments are sometimes required to detect an oil spill, especially if the slick is very thin or not clearly visible.

For example, if a spill occurs at night, in ice, or among seaweeds, the oil slick must be detected and tracked using instruments onboard aircraft or satellites.

According to United Nations the remote sensing is defined as the sensing of the Earth’s surface from space by. Remote sensing can help in preparing various kinds of disaster management products including an Oil Spill Location Map, an Oil Spill Trajectory Map and an Oil Spill Risk Map.

Decision makers and responders for oil spills should be well aware of the advantages and limitations of various remote sensing technologies.

The Vapor Sensor detects hydrocarbon vapor exceeding the programmed threshold limit in the monitoring well. Detect dangerous hydrocarbon vapors in dry monitoring wells. When vapors exceed a programmed threshold, the Vapor Sensor sends an audible and visual signal to a Veeder-Root automatic tank gauge console telling you where the problem is, so.

research addresses remote sensing, especially hyperspectral image analysis applicable to the Chesapeake Bay. This case study is a prototype of oil spill leaks in Patuxent River in Maryland (Darrell and Brebbia, ) and the associated image analysis for detecting oil spills using hyperspectral imagery and the effect of oil contaminants.

REMOTE SENSING "Remote sensing is the science (and to some extent, art) of acquiring information about the Earth's surface without actually being in contact with it. This is done by sensing and recording reflected or emitted energy and processing, analyzing, and applying that information" (12).

Energy Source or Illumination (A) 2. In summary, radar optimized for oil spills is useful in oil spill remote sensing, particularly for searches of large areas and for night-time or foul weather work.

The technique is highly prone to false targets, however, and is limited to a narrow range of wind speeds (–10 m/s). By definition, remote sensing implies that a sensor, other than the eye, is used to detect the target of interest at some distance.

The most common form of remote sensing as applied to oil spills is airborne remote sensing - that is using aircraft as a platform. Visual observation - regardless ofthe platform used, is by definition, not remote.

energy bands. Remote sensing technologies presently employed by the oil spill response community utilize the UV, Visible, TIR and Microwave energy bands (fig. There are two types of remote sensing systems, passive and active. Passive remote sensing systems record energy naturally radiated or reflected from an object.

The wavelength bands used in remote sensing systems are usually designed to fall within these windows to minimize the atmospheric absorption effects. These windows are found in the visible, near-infrared, certain bands in thermal infrared and the microwave regions. Effects of Atmospheric Absorption on Remote Sensing Images.Remote sensing of oil spills in conjunction with their prevention and combat has long since evolved into a key element for the protection of the marine environment.

The impact of oil spills caused by ship traffic and platform discharges has induced decision makers worldwide to establish airborne pollution surveillance services.
