A conception and technical realization of a spectrofluorimeter for detection, identification and thickness measurements of the oil films on the water surface are presented in this paper. Remote analysis of the oil spills on the water surface is of interest in the environment control, searching and rescue works on the sea, safety supervision for oil extraction and fuel transportation on the expanse of water, and so on. The remote laser spectrofluorimetry is a promising way to solve these problems. Detection of signals of the fluorescence excited in the oil film by laser pulse is the physical basis for remote oil analysis by a spectrofluorimeter which includes detection of a spill, identification of the oil type, determination of the spill dimensions (film thickness and square) and its age.
