Description

This publication is part of the IPIECA-IOGP Good Practice Guide Series which summarizes current views on good practice for a range of oil spill preparedness and response topics. The series aims to help align industry practices and activities, inform stakeholders, and serve as a communication tool to promote awareness and education. Despite the best intentions of an on-water response to an oil spill at sea or in a river, the likelihood is that at least some of the spilled oil will eventually reach the shoreline. When
shoreline impact occurs, or is likely to occur, shoreline assessment is a critical component of the response programme and provides essential information for setting objectives, priorities, constraints and end points for an effective shoreline response.
