Abstract

In general, the problem of oil marine pollution is considered to be of extreme importance for the marine environment. It is a wellknown fact, that detailed databases concerning oil spill incidents, are the necessary means for a realistic statistical analysis. In this paper, we will present the findings from a review analysis of databases, which include oil spill data. Then we will focus on the way that the Greek oil spill database was developed. We will conclude the description of the aforementioned database by defining some basic points of its statistical analysis and by exhibiting some corresponding indicative results.
