We consider a two-wave sounding method for detecting oil spills on the sea surface. It is shown that the two-wave method allows one to distinguish between oil spills on the sea surface and areas with smoothed wind-induced wave (for example because of a slick on the water surface) and areas with high reflection coefficient (for instance, caused by a foam on the water surface) and thus to detect oil spills with high reliability.
