Innovation Now, a NASA-supported radio broadcast, features technology research sponsored by NASA’s Disasters program to detect and characterize the thickness of oil spills using satellite remote sensing. University of Maryland’s Frank Monaldo shares how this work will help disaster responders such as NOAA, the U.S. Coast Guard, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) make the “most” of their resources when responding to oil spills.

The Innovation Now series reaches more than 27 million listeners worldwide each day. It is broadcast via public, college and commercial radio stations and is available for mobile devices through various podcast apps, smart speakers, and streaming platforms. The program is a collaboration between NASA’s Space Technology Mission Directorate and the National Institute of Aerospace and is distributed by WHRV 89.5, Norfolk, VA.
