A STUDY OF THE COST EFFECTIVENESS OF REMOTE SENSING SYSTEMS FOR OCEAN SLICK DETECTION AND CLASSIFICATION

The report deals with the selection of a method of determining the cost effectiveness of present and future proposals for detecting and classifying oil slicks by remote sensing. The type of instruments and sensor packages based on Coast Guard requirements and availability as well as the best obtainable cost estimates are reviewed. A figure of merit called the effective 'cost per slick' is computed using data obtained from a number of sources. It includes a suggested approach to present and future remote sensing technology.
