Environment and oil spill response (EOS) - An analytic tool for environmental assessments to support oil spill response planning

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review

Several concepts, methodologies or tools are developed, which are used for supporting and optimising oil spill response and preparedness. Here we present the EOS tool; Environment & Oil Spill Response (EOS) - an analytic tool for environmental assessments to support oil spill response planning. The EOS tool is considered a generic, open source analytic tool, which include simple and transparent calculations, scoring and decision tree systems. The EOS tool can be used for specific activities, but also for a specified area. It is not focused on particular nations or environmental conditions, and it is not linked to a particular oil spill simulation model. However, it is recommended using oil spill simulation models which may provide relatively detailed data. The EOS tool consists of an excel document with formulas for calculations and scores with references to explanatory boxes followed by screening through decision trees. The EOS tool will be launched at the Aarhus University home page as open source by end of August 2019, but will be presented at the GRACE conference in Tallinn, Estonia, in May 2019.
