MarineAware is developed to help detect and mitigate oil spills in the ocean, helping to safeguard marine life and coastlines. Combining a range of datasets – including weather data, tide, wind and satellite observation data – MarineAware models oil spills and their dispersion patterns to inform and optimise stakeholder responses. The dispersion model can also be applied in the reverse to help identify the source of a detected spill.
MarineAware uses satellite imagery to identify and locate potential oil spills and the extent of the spillage. Dispersion modelling provides early warning where there is risk of an oil spill reaching land, enabling faster and more efficient responses. As well as detecting the oil spill, MarineAware allows for sophisticated modelling of scale and impact, making use of a range of data services including weather, bathymetry, tide and wave heights.
