Marine pollution, in general, and accidental marine pollution, in particular, are issues of major concern from the standpoint of their impacts on the health of the marine environment and their socio-economic uses.

Driven by economic, ecological and security considerations, there is an increasing pressure upon the need for new or improved prevention mechanisms and emergency response systems to better protect the world’s marine ecosystems.

In this context, decisions based on sound scientific principles are indispensable for the effective prevention of accidents and efficient formulation of contingency plans.
