Abstract

The possibility of using the laser fluorescence method for detecting leakage of oil pipelines at a fluorescence excitation wavelength of 355 nm was analyzed. The results of experimental studies of the spectra of laser-induced fluorescence of clean crude oils and crude oils spilled on the soil as well as natural and anthropogenic elements of the site naturally located on the land are presented. It is shown that the fluorescent signal from oil spills on the Earth’s surface can be compared with that from vegetation and water bodies. However, the fluorescent signal from oil spills can be distinguished from that from vegetation and water bodies by analyzing the shape of the fluorescence spectra.
