|D O W N L O A D|
This IMO publication is dealing with the oil spill responses. Even despite a huge number of guidelines and manuals available today on the subject matter, they mostly cover the arctic and temperate waters. The present publication will be beneficial to the people involved in responding to the oil spills that occur in the tropical areas. The information is intended to be applied when preparing the appropriate response strategies.
The idea is to provide them with the necessary info and instructions on the necessary response measure and what should be avoided in such cases. There is some supplementary information included, for example relevant techniques, fate of the oil spilled, marine habitats etc. all of the principles described in this publications have been worked out on the basis of the real life case studies as well as the results of the experiments reported earlier.
Since each spill features its particular characteristics, the information contained in the book shall be treated as guidance and not strict must-follow instructions, and due and reasonable flexibility shall be maintained at all times. The content covers the initial procedures, response actions, and all materials and equipment used.
