Abstract

In this paper, we present the results of a statistical analysis (for the time period
1978-1995) and a relative strategic survey of the magnitude of oil pollution
from ships in the Mediterranean Sea. The Mediterranean Sea is a very sensitive
and closed ecosystem which makes the need of protection from oil pollution
imperative. The electronic tool of "SPILLASE" which administrates in a
multi-fold manner the data base from the REMPEC Organization in Malta, is a
contribution to that direction. We then present the results of a statistical analysis
that cover the area of the Mediterranean Sea and all the corresponding fleet.
Finally, we present a strategic survey which reveals a stable dependence of the
fluctuation of the volume of spilled oil (from naval accidents of Greek ships) in
the Mediterranean Sea (1978-1995) from a newly introduced term called
"accident product".
