|Abstract:||In this paper the potential of COSMO-SkyMed is examined for operational oil spill detection, focusing on the Adriatic Sea. A limiting feature of satellite SAR for routine oil spill monitoring purposes is the low revisit time over the same area. Therefore, the potential of acquiring COSMO-SkyMed images, which are spaced by only a few hours in the Adriatic Sea, offers significant advantages for operational services in terms of detection confirmation capabilities, spills drift measurement and follow-up procedure definition in support to aerial and naval means. In addition, other characteristics of COSMO-SkyMed point to good suitability of the instrument for operational oil spill detection in the area.|
