The Emergencies Science and Technology Section (ESTS), Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC), has recently released the third edition of “Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Technique (SCAT) Manual” in French and English versions. The second edition was prepared in 2000 and has been incredibly popular with oil spill response organizations, local stakeholders, Indigenous Peoples and other groups. Several thousand copies of the SCAT Manual third edition, will be distributed to oil spill responders throughout Canada and internationally. For more than forty years, ESTS has recognized the importance of technology transfer and outreach to the spill response community. This has included developing tools such as guides and manuals whose purpose is to translate current scientific knowledge into best practices for oil spill preparedness and response.
