The International Maritime Organization (IMO) and the Arctic Council working group for Emergency Preparedness and Response (EPPR) contracted the team of Owens Coastal Consultants and DF Dickins Associates to prepare a new, comprehensive Guide to Oil Spill Response in Ice and Snow Conditions.  At 183 pages, the lavishly illustrated main report provides a unique insight into the issues and strategies surrounding the challenge of spill response in the Arctic.


IMO is in the process of finalizing a companion volume that includes Antarctica and other subarctic areas affected by ice.  Public release is expected in mid-2017.
