The first objective is to perform a continuous monitoring of ship-source marine pollution by oil or other harmful substances which can be traced at the sea surface. The second objective is to evaluate the use of satellites for marine pollution monitoring and surveillance. The third objective is to maximize the chance of catching MARPOL offenders red-handed while discharging oil or other harmful substances in the sea and finally, the results of the operation and the outcome of the evaluation workshop will enable the project team to draft European Guidelines on oil pollution monitoring, detection and reporting procedures for use at national and at sub-regional level.
