Excerpt
Introduction: During the initial phases of an oil spill response, information about the release is often extremely sketchy. Although various types of remote sensing techniques are available for detecting and mapping oil distribution, the most reliable technique is visual observations from aircraft. These observations are used by the response team to forecast subsequent oil movement, implement appropriate oil spill countermeasures, and inform the wider response community of the present status of pollution distribution.
