Welcome to the Mariner Project "Training package for HNS Spills at sea" E-Learning page. The material was organized by CIIMAR and Action Modulers.
The material is separated in the following sections:
- 1 Introduction to Hazardous and Noxious Substances (HNS)
- 2 Environmental Impacts
- 3 Environmental Monitoring
- 4 Advanced Tools for Preparedness & Response
Introduction to Hazardous and Noxious Substances (HNS)
General concepts about HNS (e.g. what is HNS, behaviour classes, etc.).
The sections below address the hazardous chemicals transported by sea, the chemical spill incidents, the definition of Hazardous and Noxious Substances (HNS) and the risks associated with HNS (e.g. the behaviour of chemicals in the marine environment). A brief introduction to the advantage of classifying chemicals according to the behaviour on preparedness and response to chemical spills is also provided.
This chapter is divided into 5 sections: 1. Hazardous chemicals transported by sea 2. Chemical spill incidents 3. Definition of Hazardous and Noxious Substances (HNS) 4. Risks associated with HNS 4.1. Behaviour of chemicals in the marine environment 5. Advantage of classifying chemicals according to the behaviour on preparedness and response to chemical spills
Ecology and Publich Health (e.g. most affected species and toxicological effects).
Monitoring (e.g. Monitoring Protocols).
Advanced Tools for Preparedness & Response
In the next sections are presented several multidisciplinary approaches to hns spill preparedness and response.
Situational Awareness And Common Operating Picture
The Mariner Platform is a web GIS that integrate multiple information layers and efficiently manage the response to an eventual spill. It provides operational meteorological, hydrodynamics and waves modelling and online on-demand hns ecotoxicology spill.
Integration of Online Databases in Preparedness & Response
Modelling Fate & Behaviour of HNS Spills
Coastal Vulnerability Mapping
Vulnerability Mapping (e.g. risk management prioritization) and methodology.
