Abstract : The Airborne Remote Sensing System is an ultraviolet and thermal infrared line scanner system installed on U.S. Coast Guard Aircraft. The system is designed to detect and map oil pollution in the marine environment. The system uses two line scanners and includes film recorders and real time displays. This manual qualitatively analyses the observed effects of petroleum products in the 0.3 to 0.4 micrometer ultraviolet region and 8 to 14 micrometer thermal infrared region. The manual also describes the observed effects of false target such as fish-oils, ship wakes, effluents, and seaweed. The manual includes imagery of a series of tests involving discharges of various types of oils. Instructions for equipment operation to optimize results are included. (Author)
