Abstract : The NASA 927, Earth Resources Aircraft, at Coast Guard request, flew over the Chevron Oil Spill on 16 March 1970, during the day and night. The aircraft was equipped with photographic, infrared, and radar type systems, which collected the data in the oil spill area. Ground truth data during these overflights was collected by Coast Guard personnel and a team of oceanographers from Louisiana State University. The initial data received from NASA, Manned Spacecraft Center was restricted to photographic and 8 to 14 micrometer scanner data. The preliminary analysis of the test results obtained is limited to the above mentioned applicable sensors. (Author)
