The EOS is a desktop analysis based on oil spill scenarios and published as well as expert knowledge on the environment in the assessment area. The EOS tool can support decisions of inclusion of mechanical recovery, in situ burning and chemical dispersants in national oil spill contingency plans. In addition, the results obtained through the EOS tool can be used for establishment of cross-border and trans-boundary co-operation and agreements on oil spill response. The EOS tool is based on an Excel spreadsheet, with references to explanatory boxes provided in the EOS Handbook. This EOS tool was developed in Work package 5 of the GRACE project: Strategic Net Environmental Benefit Analysis. During the planning and development phase the tool was known as the sNEBA tool, but the name was changed to EOS tool during the working process.
