Abstract: With its higher resolution bands, its two daily acquisitions, and the possibility to obtain near real-time data free of charge, the NASA MODIS optical sensor shows interesting potential as a cost-effective tool for oil spill monitoring in the marine environment. All available MODIS images acquired during the Lebanon crisis in summer 2006 are hereby analyzed to study under which conditions MODIS is able to detect oil features on the sea surface and which kind of information can be retrieved.
