A tool to measure an oil spill in the Wadden Sea

An oil spill in the Wadden Sea region could have disastrous consequences for tourism, leisure and the ecosystem. Therefore, ETFI, NHL and Van Hall share their knowledge. Together they develop a smart tool that calculates and visualizes the economic and environmental effects of an oil spill in the Wadden Sea.

ETFI is still running this research project.

Advantages:

  • Gaining an insight into disaster scenarios posed by a potential oil spill in the Wadden Sea region
  • Knowledge of combating oils spills and decision-making in case of a disaster
  • Inventory of risk areas by means of a scenario analysis
