20th anniversary of the Amoco Cadiz

The year of the 20th anniversary of the Amoco Cadiz disaster was calm in terms of spill response, the main mobilisations being for a spill in a canal in the North of France, tank containers of toxic products drifting in the Channel and recurrent seepage from the bunkers of the cargo ship Peter Sif which sank in 1979 off Ushant. It was therefore possible to implement a technical programme with a 40 % increase, produce a learning guide for a young audience entitled "Mieux comprendre les marées noires" and to heavily involve the team in the International Scientific Meetings "20 years after the Amoco Cadiz".
