Environmental data will play an important role in the planning, site selection, design, construction, and operation of supertanker and other offshore facilities, as well as in the assessment of potential pollution resulting from spillage and leakage. Specific types of environmental data needed during each phase are discussed in detail and, where applicable, in terms of cost effectiveness versus protection of the environment. Discussed next are the availability of historical environmental data from national centers and the need for subsequent onsite observations. Finally, two recent environmental data studies developed for potential supertanker ports are reviewed, and the need for more detailed studies cited.
