The Joint Research Centre (IPSC - SERAC Unit) is carrying out a systematic mapping of the illicit vessel discharges using mosaics of satellite images over all the European Seas. These maps and the associated statistics are repeated on an annual basis in order to assess the global trend. This action helped to reveal for the first time what is the dimension of the oil pollution impact, thus stressing the need for more concerted international actions. This technical EUR Report assess in particular the situation in the Adriatic Sea for the period 1999-2002, summer 2004 and it has been produced following a request of Regione Marche.
