The main objective of this work is the adaptation and implementation of the analysis tool OSRCEAT (Oil Spill Response Cost-Effectiveness Analytical Tool) in the coastal environment of the Canary Islands (Spain). The purpose of the Oil Spill Response Cost-Effectiveness Analytical Tool its to compare the costs that would be applied for different types of responses for different potential scenarios. First, we must input on main spill parameters location factors, and response options for Canary Islands, OSRCEAT calculates the cost of response operations, as well as enviromental cost (natural resources) and socio economics impacts for each oil spill type. It is also important to determine the economic costs of the intervention itself on oil spill. Then we can simulate previously and compare the damage caused by the oil spill if there is no response, in contrast to the results obtained if the response mechanisms contemplated for contingency plans are properly implemented.
