AbstractWith the support of PERD, IOT?s Ship Iceberg Collision Database was converted and expanded from its original brief text description of some 560 collisions to a Microsoft Access version now containing approximately 670 events, many with full accounts of the collisions, environmental conditions at the time, and damage incurred. Reports are supplemented when possible with description of the ship characteristics, photographs of the ship and damage, and appropriate ice charts showing the location of the accident to known ice conditions at or near the time. Descriptions of the events have come from a variety of sources including accounts from newspapers, books, websites, and from formal investigations, and all events are duly referenced.
