Short summary
A combined methodology to estimate time and space variable shoreline risk levels from ships has been developed, integrating metocean forecasts and oil spill simulations with vessel tracking automatic identification systems (AIS) and coastal vulnerability indices. Results show the ability of the proposed methodology to estimate the risk properly sensitive to dynamic metocean conditions and oil transport behaviour, enhancing the maritime situational awareness and the decision support model.
