AN EXPLORATORY STUDY OF MARINE COLLISION RECORDS

This study forms phase one of a proposed two-phased research program to assess the value of marine casualty records as a source of data amenable to quantitative analysis and from which meaningful interpretations may be drawn about marine collisions. The study demonstrated that much useful and factual information about collisions is available in the Coast Guard records. Further, it demonstrates a method for extracting, organizing and analyzing the information at present buried in the records of marine collisions.
