The processes related to the acquisition and analysis of data affecting the safety of anchoring operations have been presented. The collected data made it possible to achieve the research goal, which was to assess the variability of under keel clearance in simulated scenarios for various hydro-meteorological conditions observed in the area of the anchorage. The result of the simulation tests is to identify the risks that may occur during anchoring of the LNG carrier and the presented issues may be helpful in safe planning of the anchorage for LNG ships.}, doi = {10.12716/1001.14.04.20}, issn = {2083-6473}, publisher = {Gdynia Maritime University, Faculty of Navigation}, keywords = {LNG Carrier, Anchorage, Under Keel Clearance (UKC), Simulation Tests, Safety at Sea, Hydro-Meteorological Conditions, Anchorage for LNG Ships, Ship Handling} }
