Environmental and economic loss analyses of the oil discharge from shipwreck for salvage planning

In this study, the authors carry out environmental and economic loss analyses of the oil discharge from the shipwreck Jeh Hun. By performing 500 simulations of hypothetical oil spill cases, the authors obtain the minimum and worst damage cases. In the minimum damage case, there is just marine pollution without coastal pollution or aquaculture farm pollution. On the other hand, in the worst damage case, there is serious marine pollution, coastal pollution, and aquaculture pollution. The main purpose of the environmental and economic loss analyses is to support salvage planning for the shipwreck, because the authors have to consider the oil discharge from the shipwreck during oil removal and salvage. The results of this study show that the best salvage time is early morning in winter, when the northwest wind and maximum flood tide are dominant resulting in the spilt oil going forward into the open sea without coastal pollution and aquaculture pollution.
