Plymouth Marine Laboratory Marine Pollution
Product by Plymouth Marine Laboratory
|PML is currently demonstrating an automated satellite radar-based oil detection system in South-East Asian waters – this data automatically drives an oil advection and dispersion model. This system can be employed as a regular monitoring tool to assess environmental compliance of marine conventional energy structures (platforms, pipelines, STS zones etc.), as a monitoring tool for high density shipping routes to deter illegal bilge pumping, or as a management tool in emergency spill situations.
