Description

Conditions at sea, human error and mechanical failure are some of the main causes of oil spills. For an effective clean-up operation to be organised, a knowledge of the extent of the spill and direction it is moving is essential. Radar satellites and the upcoming Sentinel missions provide data to monitor and respond to this form of pollution.
