Can a GIS toolbox assess the environmental risk of oil spills? Implementation for oil facilities in harbors.

Abstract

Oil spills are one of the most widespread problems in port areas (loading/unloading of bulk liquid, fuel supply). Specific environmental risk analysis procedures for diffuse oil sources that are based on the evolution of oil in the marine environment are needed. Diffuse sources such as oil spills usually present a lack of information, which makes the use of… (More)
