AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHIC APPLICATIONS IN SUPPORT OF OIL SPILL CLEANUP, CONTROL AND PREVENTION

For several years, EPA aircraft have carried out aerial photographic missions, mapping the extent of and shoreline contamination from major oil spills in support of cleanup and control operations and environmental damage assessment. In 1975, the EPA began a program of aerial photographic overflights of selected onshore oil production, storage, and processing facilities to support the compliance monitoring of EPA's oil pollution prevention regulation. The aerial mapping program is described, and specific applications of aerial photography to oil pollution prevention compliance monitoring are discussed.
