TANKERS AND THE ECOLOGY
Modern tanker design must consider the impact of the ship on the environment and minimize the risk that its cargos present to the ecology. The sources, magnitudes, and ecological effects of oil pollution are presented. This includes a comprehensive, worldwide tanker casualty analysis of 1516 incidents which occurred during 1969 and 1970. Based on the sources of oil and the casualty analysis, tanker design proposals are described and analyzed in terms of need, effectiveness, and practicality. Related shoreside installations, including terminals, shoreside ballast facilities, and harbor traffic control systems are discussed. The concepts advanced within this paper produce a tanker transportation system which minimizes the oil pollution potential.
