CleanSeaNet is the European satellite-based Oil Spill Monitoring and Vessel Detection service. The service analyses images, mainly from SAR but also from optical missions, to detect possible oil spills on the sea surface, and identify potential polluters. The service was launched ten years ago in April 2007 and supports Member States’ actions to combat deliberate or accidental pollution in the marine environment. EMSA developed and operates the CleanSeaNet service.
