Ehime maru vs uss greeneville l.jpg

9 Feb 2001 USS Greeneville collided with a Japanese training and fishing vessel Ehime Maru

Ehime Maru sank in ~ 600m of water, ~17km south of Diamond Head (Oahu, Hawaii)

26 of 35 crew members were rescued, 9 remaining crew members were assumed trapped inside the vessel

After an environmental assessment & under mounting int’l pressure the US Navy agreed to attempt to recover the bodies

Environmental concerns l.jpg

There was still concern that during relocation a release of contaminants (diesel fuel & lubricating oil) could occur

Beach Contamination

Marine Mammals, Migratory Birds, Sea Turtles, etc.

Environmental Concerns


Noaa or r s mandate l.jpg

To determine, through the use of oil-plume models, the optimal sea state and wind conditions necessary to avoid beach contamination

NOAA OR&R’s Mandate

Climatology of Global Ocean Winds


Summary l.jpg

Scatterometers provide valuable information in many regions of the world ocean that are sparsely sampled by ships and buoys

Anticipated uses:

Oil spill mitigation

Training and emergency response planning

Summary


Nws feedback l.jpg

“excellent potential for our regional marine workshops”

“Eastern Region would very much like to have this kind of data for our marine program”

“The web site is cool”
