The ability to remotely detect and monitor oil spills at sea is becoming increasingly important due high demand of oil based products. As a consequence, shipping routes become much busier and the likelihood of slicks occurring will also increase. If applied correctly, an integrated remote sensing system can act as a beneficial monitoring tool. The integrated system should monitor ship traffic and marine operators using a sensing capability made of electronic sensors, geopositioning tools, and a communication infrastructure network. In this paper, based on the concept of dynamic risk, we propose a new model that should account in an unique scenario two different classes of data correspondent, in one case to possible sources of oil spill pollution events, and in the other one case to real time sensing monitoring. We name this model Geomatrix. Its successful implementation could involve a reduction of the costs for an effective real time monitoring of large marine areas, including Oceans.
