OIL SPILL CASE HISTORIES, 1967-1991: SUMMARIES OF SIGNIFICANT U.S. AND INTERNATIONAL SPILLS; FINAL REPT
Discussions between the USCG Research and Development Center and NOAA concluded that, by providng insights into past experiences, a database of oil spill case histories might be beneficial to the USCG, NOAA, and other agencies involved in spill response and contingency planning. These case histories, developed with significant funding and consultation from the USCG Research and Development Center, are intended as references to be read as planning aids for insights into scientific and operational decision-making, and to ensure that particular strategic elements are properly addressed in contingency planning.
