News Flash: EMODnet Checkpoints face 6 oil leak challenges
In order to assess the potential of current marine data services to address commercial and policy ‘challenges’ relevant to the development of the Blue Economy, the six EMODnet Sea Basin Checkpoints were requested to assess the impact of simulated oil spills in their respective sea basins (the Arctic, Atlantic, Baltic, Black Sea, Mediterranean and North Sea). The ‘Checkpoint Oil Leak Challenges’ were launched on 10/05/2016, with teams reporting after 24 and 72 hours on the fate and expected impact of the spills. Further information and the detailed reports can be found on the maritime forum here.
