Mediterranean Oiled Shoreline Assessment Guidelines (2009)

The Guidelines are aimed at harmonising shoreline assessment in the region and at facilitating exchange of information. The common regional shoreline assessment procedure should fasten the communication in time of crisis and should enable any regional or international expert to understand and subsequently analyse the shoreline assessment form and provide consistent recommendations on appropriate response strategy.

The content and format of these guidelines are based on the recommendations from Phase I of the project, the comparative study of existing guidelines on oiled shoreline assessment.

This report contains a bibliography and full list of references used during the project.
