Final Report


In 2007, the United States Coast Guard in conjunction with the Department of Justice began implementing a Special Waste Oil Monitoring System on vessels that have repeatedly violated environmental regulations regarding oil-waste. Until now, the process for analyzing this data and been both slow and laborious. To address this, a system for data acquisition, storage and analysis was created. If implemented, this system will reduce analysis time from three months down to two weeks.
