Satellite-based radar monitoring: Key applications
Naumenko A.A. (OOO Gazprom geologorazvedka, RF, Moscow)
Diversified, wide-scale applications for modern satellitebased technologies are preferably set to benefit the environment, especially in the most vulnerable areas, by means of timely identification of potential environmental hazards such as contamination and pollution, at early emergency stages. As a result, it is believed possible to make better informed and timely decisions aimed to locate the key sources and eliminate such hazards as well as prevent further affected zone expansion into offshore and coastal areas. Emergency prediction and oil spill modelling are assumed to be integral part of a general security management system for offshore operations under current exploration efforts in Russia.
