ITOPF was invited to participate in the Coastal Response Research Center's (CRRC) workshop "SCAT for Tomorrow" at NOAA's Disaster Response Center in Mobile, Alabama from 18-19 January 2017. SCAT or Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Technique is a systematic method for surveying an affected shoreline after an oil spill.

The aim of the workshop was to develop a consensus on data standards for shoreline oiling to spur the development of advanced inter-operable data collection and management tools for oil spill response. Dr Mark Whittington attended on behalf of ITOPF. The other participants (48 in total) comprised representatives from NOAA, USCG, EPA, state authorities and industry, as well as other international organisations.
