AbstractThe location and the way the accident of the old tanker Prestige occurred implied a great challenge for the organization and coordination of actions to fight against the oil pollution. Although the use of Lagrangian floats was made in other incidents in the past the characteristics of the Prestige accident indicated the need to deploy a relative great number of buoys as a major novelty respect to similar accidents. The purpose of this contribution is to describe the operational actions performed during this particular accident, and to show the use of Lagrangian floats as an efficient procedure to improve the management and advice for such catastrophic events.
