Lowcost oil identification and oil monitoring

Information about the on-going drift of the oil and the binders is essential. This will be realised with a low cost spectrometer that analyses the reflected light of the water surface, using a database of different oil concentrations at sea, which has been created during the project, including many different sea state and weather conditions. Thereby an aerial observation of the spill and its countermeasures is guaranteed and the drift of the binders can be observed. The analyzed data can be downloaded from a specific Website and displayed at common GPS- Units.
