The Iceberg ship collision database, previously available as a text document, has been augmented and enlarged and is now available in Microsoft Access. It now lists some 670 collisions in the northern hemisphere most of which occurred on the Grand Banks. The format and design of the database is briefly described and some results from analyses of the database are presented showing various trends of collisions, scope of damage and environmental factors involved. A probability of collision was derived from the number of cargo ship collisions over the past several years based on an estimate of the number of voyages over the Grand Banks.
