Abstract
    At the end of 1996 the Management Unit of North Sea Mathematical Models released an activity report on the first five years of Belgian aerial surveillance (1991-1995). This paper, which is based on that activity report, deals with the problem of accidental oil pollution resulting from maritime accidents in the Belgian zone of interest. It also gives an overview of the illegal operational pollutions from ships in that zone. On the basis of the annual surveillance data and a simple extrapolation method it is estimated that the total quantity annually released in illegal operational oil spills is most probably of the same order of magnitude or greater than the accidental releases.
