The Model of Oil Spills Due to Ships Collisions in Southern Baltic Area
1 Maritime University of Szczecin, Szczecin, Poland
ABSTRACT: The paper presents implementation of probabilistic ships collision model to evaluation of possible oil spills in the Southern Baltic Sea area. The results of the model is time, place and size of the oil spill due to ships collision. The results could be used for oil spill response action plans. The paper will open the discussion about validation of achieved results and will try to answer the question about verification of Baltic Sea oil spills data in comparison to worlds statistics.
