The project at a Glance

Accurate oil slick detection and mapping are particularly important for Arctic spills, as oil may be hidden from view under snow and ice during periods of almost total darkness... more

Key Goals of the Project

The overall goal is to expand the industries remote-sensing and monitoring capabilities in darkness and low visibility in broken ice, under ice, and to detect and track subsea plumes that can develop if dispersants are used to control continuous subsea releases... more
