The Institute's documentation lists accidents involving oil spills of more than 500 tons from various sources (tankers, platforms, pipelines, coastal facilities). The Institute's data bank concerning tanker accidents is also dealt with in detail, covering over 400 accidents which occurred between 1955 and 1979. Maps showing these accidents and oil spills are included in the back pocket.
