Description

Consequences of Maritime Critical Infrastructures Accidents presents a probabilistic general model of critical infrastructure accident consequences. This include three models of the process of the events generated by a critical infrastructure accident, the process of the environment threats and the process of environment degradation. This is all created and adopted to the maritime transport critical infrastructure, with a focus on shipping networks applied to accident consequences modeling.

Consequences of Maritime Critical Infrastructures Accidents is devoted to the assessment methods of consequences of environmental damages, with application to ship accidents. It is a new approach that has never been proposed and applied before and includes methods of modeling, identification, prediction and optimization to allow the reader to better understand the effects of these accidents on our oceans. Moreover, the general procedures and the new strategy presented in the book aim to lower environment losses concerned with chemical releases caused by an accident of ship critical infrastructure network operating within the Baltic Sea or world sea waters.

Key Features

  • Provides a complete approach to accident consequences modeling, identification, prediction and optimization
  • Presents the theoretical background, which can be applied practically to maritime critical infrastructure accident consequences analysis
  • Includes a general model for critical infrastructure accident consequences which is globally applicable and with wide applications in various industrial sectors

Readership

This book is perfect for graduate-level and post graduate level of researchers who are interested in maritime spill accidents and maritime environment protection, namely oceanographers, environmental scientists, environmental engineers, transport experts, oil and gas experts.
