About two-third of the earth covered with water. Oceanographic research is one of the leading area of research. Major area of oceanographic research is the detection of oil spills. Ocean is home for several aquatic creatures. Every year many aquatic creatures loose life due to pollution that occurs through the leakage of oil. Oil leakage occurs due to several reasons like the breakage of oil pipes, leakage of oil from the ships and through industrial wastes. Oil spill detection is a very important challenge faced by the researchers in oceanographic realm. In this project we present a new scheme detection of oil spill using the Internet of things. We propose a method of applying the Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs) to detect oil spills in ocean. In addition, we propose inclusion of intelligence at multiple aggregation levels to improve the efficiency of deployed network. As additional intelligence is granted to sensor nodes, instead of being passive detectors, they work as intelligent observers, thereby making the detection process, an inter-network of intelligent nodes.
