Knowledge & Resources
Our extensive first-hand experience of marine spill incidents over half a century has been distilled into a series of films “Response to Marine Oil Spills”, 18 Technical Information Papers (TIPs) and a multitude of other papers and presentations.
The majority of our documents are available for free to download and are linked from the different topic areas.
We have also built up one of the largest technical libraries on marine pollution in the world. This is a primary source of reference for our own staff and is open to outside visitors by appointment.
