The European Community, as an association of technologically highly developed nations, including several powerful members possessing shores on the Mediterranean, strongly developed a monitoring system using satellite data, to fight marine pollution due to oil slicks in the Mediterranean sea as important water body for Mediterranean countries (RAMSES System). In addition the system was provided by meteorological and oceanographic data on winds, currents and waves to predict movements of oil slicks. NARSS has been selected as a pilot user for this system. The system offers a good opportunity to be involved in an international project making use of satellite data for a significant application, of broad national interest.
