Abstract
The ultraviolet fluorescence property of oil suggests the possibility of a more sensitive technique for the detection of oil pollution on water than either UV or visible photography alone. To demonstrate the advantages of this technique, several photographic methods of oil detection were compared in a feasibility experiment in the laboratory. Ultraviolet reflectance photography at 3600 A also gave good results. Theoretically, the fluorescence of oil by the 2537 A mercury line is stronger than fluorescence at 3600 A and therefore should be even more sensitive in detecting oil pollution. Methods of discriminating against ambient light are discussed.
