For some years, IIASA has promoted and undertaken studies of the analytical, institutional, and sociological aspects of the risks associated with new technologies. Since 1979, with the encouragement and generous financial support of the Bundesministerium fuer Forschung und Technologie of the Federal Republic of Germany, IIASA has made particular studies of the issues associated with siting terminals for shipping, storage, and processing of liquefied energy gases (LEG). From the beginning, comparative analyses of issues and ways of handling them in different places and various conditions were judged of capital importance.

Dr. Christoph Mandl, an Austrian operational researcher, and Dr. John Lathrop, an American decision analyst, directed their attention to this aspect of the studies. This report presents their results.
