Applications to Marine Disaster Prevention : Spilled Oil and Gas Tracking Buoy System (Hardcover)
about this item
This book focuses on the recent results of an ongoing JSPS-funded project on an autonomous spilled oil and gas tracking buoy system and its applications to marine disaster prevention systems from a scientific viewpoint. In addition, the Norwegian research institute SINTEF examines issues concerning dispersants and satellite utilization. This book spotlights research on marine disaster prevention systems related to incidents involving oil tankers and offshore platforms, approaching these problems from new scientific and technological perspectives. The most essential aspect of this book is the coordination of real-time monitoring of blowout behaviour of oil and gas from the seabed using deep-sea underwater robots, and of spilled oil drifting by floating buoy robots on the sea’s surface in order to predict those behaviours more precisely.
