Forensic Oceanography

Forensic Oceanography (FO) maps the fluid cartographies between Libya and Italy to understand how more than 1500 persons could have perished at sea in the Spring of 2011.

FO provided the spatial analysis that lead to the Council of Europe report on NATO’s responsibility for these deaths in the Mediterranean.

The Council of Europe report whose release was covered very widely in all major papers makes makes several references to FO research.
The Guardian has published our sequence of FO maps in this interactive feature.

FO also appears at Human Rights Watch summary of report. The research team is now completing a large report that will be submitted to NATO the EU and the relevant courts.
