A METHOD FOR REMOTE DETECTION OF OIL SPILLS USING LASER-EXCITED RAMAN BACK-SCATTERING AND BACK-SCATTERED FLUORESCENCE

Laser methods for the remote detection of oil present as a pollutant in the sea water using Raman backscattering and backscattered fluorescence are discussed and compared. The scattering spectra of oils excited by a cw Arion laser which were obtained by using a laser Raman spectrometer are described. Theoretical performance of a laser-Raman radar for the remote detection of oil are discussed. The backscattering spectra of oils in the sea also described.
