Harmonised monitoring, reporting and assessment of illegal marine oil discharges.

Obiettivo

The overall objective is to assemble knowledge required to establish a more harmonised & effective monitoring of European waters of illicit oil discharges.
Specific objectives include:
1) comparing accuracy/efficiency of automatic & manual methods for oil-spill recognition in SAR images of satellite/aircraft sensor systems
2) analysing historic image archives to determine severity of the problem & understanding how many images/aircraft flights are needed to establish statistically robust oil pollution information
3) developing & applying a methodology for assessing the environmental effects illegal marine oil-spills at sea basin scale
4) evaluating potential support of satellite oil spill recognition to optimise airborne surveillance & combating activities
