The Science of Risk Modeling and Modeling Approaches

Safety of Oil Transportation Act - Risk model

July 14, 2020, 1 p.m., Online webinar

The model we are building is part of a package of measures passed by the Legislature in 2019 to reduce the risk of oil spills and protect Southern Resident Killer Whales.

During this webinar, we will discuss the foundations of modeling, risk modeling in a maritime context and an outline of our planned modeling approach. Please see the Risk Modeling webpage for more information on the project.


We are developing a quantitative model to assess current and potential future risks of oil spills in Washington waters.​
