A clear pattern emerged at Interspill this year – the growth sector amongst exhibitors was electronic detection of spills, using surveillance and monitoring, by satellite, by plane and on the surface. This has been led by satellite surveillance, run by EMSA, the new Director gives SpillAlert his view on the coming year. Whilst satellite is a “tier 3” type approach, “tier 1 and 2” are provided by growing use of aircraft, and also detection from aboard ships. This issue will focus on these technologies to improve our vigilance, and consequently the ability to respond faster and reduce the spill risk.

The main article will provide an overview of satellite surveillance, and EMSA’s key role, followed in future issues by a pan European series of papers on aerial detection, and surface technologies.
