Abstract

THIS REPORT SUMMARISES THE RESULTS OF LABORATORY INVESTIGATIONS AIMED AT VERIFYING THE FEASIBILITY OF MULTISPECTRAL TEMPORAL ANALYSIS OF LASER-EXCITED FLUORESCENCE FROM CRUDE OILS, IN VIEW OF REMOTE DETECTION AND CHARACTERISATION AT SEA OF THESE COMPOUNDS. THE RESULTS SHOW THAT THE COMBINED SPECTRAL AND TEMPORAL ANALYSIS DOES CONSTITUTE A SUITABLE FINGERPRINTING CRITERION, ON THE BASIS OF WHICH DIFFERENT OIL TYPES CAN BE IDENTIFIED AND CLASSIFIED. IN ADDITION REMOTE-SENSING SIMULATION EXPERIMENTS DEMONSTRATE THE TECHNICAL POSSIBILITY OF EXPLOITING THIS CRITERION FOR IN-FIELD APPLICATIONS. THE STUDY CONSTITUTES A BASIS FOR THE PROJECT AND THE CONSTRUCTION - ACTUALLY IN PROGRESS - OF A TIME RESOLVED LASER FLUOROSENSOR.
