METHOD FOR REMOTE DETECTION OF OIL SPILLS USING LASER-EXCITED RAMAN BACKSCATTERING AND BACKSCATTERED FLUORESCENCE

A laser method for the remote detection of oil present as a pollutant in the sea water using Raman backscattering and backscattered fluorescence is discussed. The scattering spectra of oils obtained by using a laser Raman spectrometer that employs a cw Ar laser are described. The backscattering spectra of oils obtained by a laser radar technique in the laboratory and the field are considered. The performance of a laser radar with a cw laser or a pulsed laser for the detection of Raman backscattering of kerosene is discussed.
