Protecting the environment
Preserving life

Pollution sources everywhere

The source of pollution for the environment exists everywhere. It is the result of industrial activities, transportation, waste disposal, and unsustainable energy consumption. Each location faces its own challenges, creating a diverse pollution scenario, from air to water and soil.

A formidable challenge for ecosystems

Oil spills and chemical incidents are among the leading causes of water and sea pollution, directly impacting water ecosystems, causing harm and death to river and marine animals, disrupting food chains, affecting freshwater sources, and devastating the economies of coastal communities.

Protecting the environment – The principle of life

Protecting the environment is not only the government’s responsibility but also everyone’s duty. Land, water, air, and food resources all depend on the stability of the environment. Taking small actions today ensures the stability and sustainable development of the environment in the future.

Risk control and management

Restoring the consequences for the environment and ecosystems can be optimized through prompt and effective cleanup activities. Better control can be achieved with well-prepared precautionary response plans.

Monitor and control oil spills

Monitoring methods for oil spill incidents are essential for devising an appropriate response strategy, thereby preventing timely consequences and minimizing environmental damage to the maximum extent.

Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Technique (SCAT) is a systematic method for surveying coastlines affected by oil spills, gathering information on oil conditions and their distribution, utilizing standardized profile data and conducted by specialized personnel. SCAT is an indispensable component in oil spill response efforts.

Remote sensing is one of the technologies that can be employed to monitor oil spill incidents through sensors in the air and space via satellites.

Laser Fluorosensor (LF) is the only sensor capable of detecting oil spills across various terrains, including water, coastlines, beaches, coastal areas, snow, and ice. LF can classify oil types based on fluoroscent decay time and is a functional sensor usable for both day and night operations.

Many scientists have endeavored to use satellite remote sensing data (e.g., Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and Near-Infrared Spectroradiometer (NIR)) instead of airborne remote sensing. However, clear weather and lengthy processing times are necessary for handling data, which may impact emergency response operations and spill prevention planning.

Advancements in Geographic Information System (GIS) can aid in developing decision support systems for actions during oil spill events, with remote sensing data serving as input for these systems. GIS can map oil spill sensitivity, reveal response and resource plans offshore/onshore, and allow for the creation of databases centralized around information from various sources.

Another widely used method for detecting thick oil slicks and emulsified oil is dual-polarization, as it requires less data and is less affected by device noise. Dual-polarization Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) primarily utilizes SAR images in HH and VV polarization channels to detect oil and differentiate between biological slicks and mineral oil slicks.

Massive spill event

  • 1979-1980

    The Ixtoc I incident in the Gulf of Mexico resulted in approximately 140 million gallons (about 3.4 million barrels) of crude oil spilling into the sea due to a blowout at the Ixtoc I oil well.

  • 1989

    The Exxon Valdez incident in Alaska, USA, led to the leakage of around 11 million barrels of oil into the waters of Alaska, causing severe consequences for marine life and the marine environment.

  • 1991

    The Gulf War event in the Persian Gulf caused approximately 240 - 336 million gallons (about 5.5 - 7.7 million barrels) of crude oil from Iraq's oil facilities to be dumped into the Gulf, creating one of the largest oil spill events in history.

  • 2010

    The Deepwater Horizon incident in the Gulf of Mexico resulted in approximately 4.9 million barrels of oil flowing into the ocean, causing significant damage to the marine environment and marine life.

  • 2016

    The Formosa Chemicals incident in the Sea of Vietnam. Chemical leaks from the Formosa Ha Tinh plant occurred from April to June 2016, severely impacting the marine environment and the livelihoods of coastal communities.
