LightTouch system
The objective is to incorporate further testing of the Shell Global Solutions LightTouch system in future spill experiments for detection of oil in and under ice.

Shell Global Solutions LightTouch system (LTS) is an ethane gas sensor which can be used to detect methane gases from oil trapped in or under ice.

The system was tested with oil under ice in the Cold Region Research and Engineering Laboratory (CRREL) in US in 2004.  The system detected ethane originating from the oil under ice with an ice thickness of 35 cm.
