In Alternative Ecological Risk Assessment the author, Lawrence V. Tannenbaum, provides a critical review of current practices in the ecological risk assessment field and proposes alternatives that are supported by established science and keen observation.

Guidelines for Port & Harbour Risk Assessment and Safety Management Systems in New Zealand 7 The risk assessment has to start with identification of hazards. A hazard can be defined as something with the potential to cause harm to: • People • Environment • Property • Harbour stakeholders. A) Ship traffic risk B) Environmental risk assessment. The two categories of risk analysis are often conducted in sequence; first A to estimate the likelihood of marine accidents and loss potential (e.g. oil spill amount) and then B to assess the potential impact to the environment (e.g. sensitive and vulnerable areas, and wildlife). Results classified more than 60% ( mil. ha) of the total area as fragile and critical, while only about 12% of the Turkey’ land was indicated as area non-affected by the desertification risk. In the determination of ESAI, the parametric and spatial models were re-designed according to data and impact value by using GIS software-supported.
