A long oil spill can be seen in this image derived from a RADARSAT-2 ScanSAR Wide scene in the South China Sea. The image also shows interesting sea state and weather fronts. With a 500 km swath width, ScanSAR scenes cover the largest area possible from a commercial SAR sensor. RADARSAT-2 is ideal for ship detection and identifying oil on water, and when combined with AIS data in a Maritime Domain Awareness product like MDA BlueHawk, can be used to identify ships that dump oil into the environment and can be used to prosecute polluters.
