MARITIME ACCIDENTAL SPILL RISK ANALYSIS. PHASE I. METHODOLOGY DEVELOPMENT AND PLANNING

The report develops a methodological approach and task plan for assessing alternative methods of reducing the potential risk caused by the spill of hazardous cargo as the result of vessel collisions and groundings. In addition to developing the overall study approach, a very preliminary analysis of ship/barge accidents in U. S. territorial waters and port traffic was done to identify types of accidents to be examined in the next phase of the study effort. The next phase will demonstrate application of the methodology, focusing on the hazards of passing encounters on clear nights. Subsequent efforts are intended to culminate in a practical risk management system for the Coast Guard's role in Merchant Marine Safety. (Author)
