Marine Watch: Preventing Oil Spill Disaster In Johor
The EASOS Marine Watch system is a decision support system underpinned by Riskaware’s MarineAware platform. It was developed as part of the Earth and Sea Observation System (EASOS) project, led by the Satellite Applications Catapult (SAC), and combines Riskaware’s MarineAware oil spill modelling platform with an automatic satellite detection capability developed by Plymouth Marine Laboratory (PML).
This case study outlines how Marine Watch was instrumental in the successful response by Malaysian Authorities to contain an oil spill off the coast of Johor; highlighting how the system was used in the detection, investigation and containment of the slick.
