What is CleanSeaNet and what information does the CleanSeaNet provide?
CleanSeaNet is a European satellite-based oil spill and vessel detection service. It offers assistance to participating countries for the following activities:
- identifying and tracing oil pollution on the sea surface from ships and from offshore installations
- monitoring accidental oil pollution at sea during emergencies
- contributing to the identification of polluters
The service provides very fast alerts of detected oil spills on the sea surface and identification of the potential polluter.
