Oil Spill Detection, Identification, and Tracing (Paperback)
Oil Spill Detection, Identification and Tracing provides readers with currently applicable technical methods, including early warning monitoring of trace oil film in ports, remote sensing monitoring of sea surface oil spills, and source tracing. Beginning with the causes and characteristics of oil spills on water, chapters then evaluate a range of different detection methods, including passive optical remote sensing, active optical remote sensing, marine radar, and GNSS-R. The book then reviews oil spill traceability technology, highlighting the ecological effect of oil spills on oceanic environment, current studies on oil spill fingerprinting, and the application of stable isotope technology in oil spill tracing.
The book concludes with three key case studies with real-world scenarios, making it a practical resource for students, researchers and engineers interested in oil spill pollution, environmental science and the marine environment.
