FEASIBILITY OF CONTINUOUS MONITORING FOR OIL POLLUTION ACROSS CHANNELS AND RIVERS

A modified production model of an active IR monostatic oil sensor was used in laboratory tests to determine the spectral reflectance signatures of hydrocarbons and water at 3.4 and 3.8 millimicron wavelengths as a function of bistatic angle, with and without water waves. The signatures of 6 different types of hydrocarbons were almost identical and uniquely different from water at bistatic angles up to 85 deg with respect to the water surface have a wavy surface. The theoretical requirements for waves and the experimental results were in close agreement.
