Clean Gulf 2016

Satellites play an ever more important role in oil spill preparedness and response by providing quick and reliable oil spill detections independent of geography, daylight or cloud cover.
monitored daily

The Norwegian oil spill detection service is provided by KSAT worldwide and end users in i.e. Australia and Gulf of Mexico benefits from the service development done in Norway. One of the challenges using satellites has been frequency and update intervals. With current developments in the satellite industry, satellite coverage will be provided more frequently and updated information will be available even faster, thus improving the capacities in the case of acute pollution.
