"The Shoreline Cleanup Assessment Technique (SCAT) is an accepted concept for the description and documentation of oiled shorelines. The field data provides systematic, science-based information that is evaluated by a spill management team as they decide on appropriate shoreline response priorities, treatment techniques and treatment completion endpoints.

This Third Edition of the Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) SCAT Manual provides a best current (2016) practice guide for Canadian shorelines"--Executive summary, p. v.
