Welcome to webinar about COSRVA on Monday April 27th.
In 2017, the Arctic Council’s Emergency Prevention, Preparedness, and Response (EPPR) Working Group commissioned the Circumpolar Oil Spill Response Viability Analysis (COSRVA) to better understand how often weather and sea conditions around the circumpolar Arctic may hinder or impede marine oil spill response systems.
In a Phase 2 of the COSRVA project, EPPR made the results of the original study available via an online portal. This portal allows users to explore the COSRVA results for a particular location or region. At the same time, the dataset used for weather and sea conditions was updated to the latest version.
Webinar 27 April 2020
Oil spill response experts and planners are hereby invited to a webinar 27 April 2020. The purpose of the webinar is to present the COSRVA portal and summarize the recent updates.
The webinar will if needed take place in two sessions to accommodate for time differences:
- Session 1: 10:00 – 11:00 CET
- Session 2: 19:00 – 20:00 CET
To participate in the webinar, please register here.
