Dispersant master class

Plane flying and spraying

Date: 19 February 2018
Location: ARRC, 26 Dick Perry Avenue, Kensington, WA
Registration fee: $800 ($1200 for both courses) (includes access to the source material)
RSVP by 5 February 2018

This CSIRO and AMSA dispersant master class is targeted at technical and non-technical experts in the oil and gas industry, shipping, and regulatory bodies. The master class will introduce key concepts, the scientific basis and logistical constraints that inform decisions on the use of dispersants in the marine incidents. Case studies will be used to illustrate both the surface and subsurface application of dispersant. While the master class is structured around presentations it will also serve as open forum to identify and address what concerns participants have regarding dispersant use in case of an oil spill

Oil Spill Monitoring

Ship spilling oil

Date: 20 February 2018
Location: ARRC, 26 Dick Perry Avenue, Kensington, WA
Registration fee: $800 ($1200 for both courses) (includes handbook)
RSVP by 5 February 2018

This CSIRO and AMSA oil spill monitoring class is targeted at technical and non-technical experts in the oil and gas industry, shipping, and regulatory bodies. The class will introduce key concepts, the scientific basis and logistical constraints that inform monitoring over different time scales following marine incidents. Case studies will be used to illustrate key points. While the master class is structured around presentations it will also serve as open forum to identify and address what concerns participants have regarding monitoring in case of an oil spill.
