Aerial Observation of Marine Oil Spills

Graham Marshall - Thursday, May 10, 2012

Aerial observation is an important element of the effective response to marine oil spills. 

Aerial observation helps to establish the extent, location and predicted direction of motion of oil slicks at sea.

Aerial observation provides information which is used to plan the deployment of control mechanisms at sea, prepare containment measures along near-by coastlines and to prepare resources for shore-based clean up campaigns.

This Technical Information Paper from the ITOPF provides important information and guidance on aerial observation of oil spills in the marine environment.
