Compendium of Arctic Ship Accidents (CASA)

A database of Arctic shipping accidents from 2005-2017.

Objective

The shipping accident information in the 2009 AMSA Report covered 1995-2004 and is thus outdated. Since then, human activity, including shipping, in the Arctic region has increased and diversified with the reduction of seasonal sea ice. To obtain more current Arctic shipping accident information, PAME undertook a project led by the USA jointly with the Arctic Council’s EPPR Working Group to develop a compendium of Arctic ship accidents covering 2005-2017.
