Risk modelling

The Marine University of Szczecin has developed an online tool with models for dynamic risk management during the Baltic Master II project.
The main objectives of these models are to; - Identify the high risk areas for ships colliding in the Baltic Sea. - Determine the possible effects of the probable accidents considering average seasonal weather conditions dominating in the Baltic Sea. - Optimize response resources allocation at the Baltic Sea.

The Region of Halland (Sweden) has produced a risk assessment study of the vessel traffic in the Kattegat. The study included effects of traffic separation schemes from the Skaw to the Sound. The navigational risks in the Kattegat, with focus on oil spill accidents affecting the coast of Halland have been investigated. The risk assessment is performed for the present traffic situation and as comparison a simulation including traffic separation schemes that moves the traffic that is heading for or coming from the Sound (Öresund) from the Routes T and D to a route closer to the Swedish coast is added.
