Sensors to be used in remote sensing missions for operational spill response. The final evaluation of preferred sensors was performed by positing a representative set of deployment modes or mission types spanning a variety of oil spill types and conditions, and based on a customized list of remote sensing.

The use of visible techniques in oil spill remote sensing is, to a great extent, restricted to documentation of the spill due to the lack of a positive oil detection mechanism. Furthermore, many interferences (false alarms) exist. Sun glint and wind sheens can be mistaken for oil sheens.

Remote sensing is able to provide essential. In the beginning, optical remote sensing on oil spill detection was introduced.

Oil and its characteristic spectral signature can be detected using optical sensors on onboard satellites. The larger part of the chapter is devoted to remote sensing of oil spills through SAR sensors operating in the microwave part of the electromagnetic spectrum. Although such platforms suffer from the problem of revisit time of satellites and aerial surveillance (Ferraro et al.), the use of satellite data for the detection of marine oil spills can.

In this study, remote sensing of oil spill monitoring subject will be studied. Oil spills no doubt destroy marine life, give fatal damage to habitat for animals and humans.

To isolate the affected areas and organise clean up efforts properly, a number of factors should be identified when an oil spill generates.

Remote sensing approach to vegetation stress Various remote sensing techniques have been used for detection of oil spill impacts on. 1. Marine (coastal) and inland waterway oil spill remote sensing. Remote sensing of on-water oil spills are highly challenging due to the fluidity of the water surface, its dependence on meteorology, hydrologyoceanography, chemistry, and the difficulty of working in the marine environment.

Remote sensing is playing a major role in determining the extent of oil spill. With the help of this instrument, oil can be monitored on the open ocean around the clock.

The demerit of this instrument is that it lags behind in technology. Another instrument known as optical sensor helps in determining the extent of oil by:   Much of the coastline in Chedabucto Bay is not readily accessible shoreline.

History of Remote Sensing The knowledge about the history of Remote Sensing is necessary for better understanding of the subject and its scope, and also for future development, particularly for the welfare of human society.

The development of remote sensing over time can be broadly divided into following six phases. Remote sensing is an effective tool to monitor oil spills. The theory of oil spill remote sensing is based on the differences between oil slick and other environmental objects.

For optical sensor, the ability of different bands to find oil film at sea is different. Oil spill object could be intensified by composing appropriate bands. In addition, image enhancements could also strengthen oil.

Keywords: Oil spill pollution, GIS, Remote sensing Data. Introduction Marine oil pollution is a major risk; oil Spills did happen in the past with all their negative environmental consequences and they will likely occur in the future.

Oil spills in the sea do present currently a serious. Existing oil spill detection methods including in-situ measurements and remote sensing primarily depend on involving skilled personnel in data collection, processing, and analysis, which could be expensive, slow, and subjective (influenced by prior experience, and judgment of.

Oil spills can be difficult to manage, with reporting frequently delayed. Too often, by the time responders arrive at the scene, the slick has moved, dissolved, dispersed or sunk.

This Oil Spill Monitoring Handbook provides practical advice on what information is likely required following the accidental release of oil or other petroleum-based products into the marine environment.
