Abstract

The purpose of this study was to design an innovative, real time, cost effective, and environment friendly in situ technique for the surface measurement of oil spill thickness. The technique was based on the concept of the electrical conductivity to characterize and to measure the thickness of an oil layer in seawater. The system was designed to monitor the seawater pollution continuously and to send an alarm if the oil level exceeds a certain limit. The results of this study are very important as they may contribute to the development of advanced practices in oil spill detection.
