Maritime transportation systems (MTS) are dynamic and complex systems, potentially exposed to various predictable and unpredictable disruptions of human, technical, environmental and organizational origin. Resilience is an overarching concept that extends the boundaries of risk by including the ability to “bounce back” from disruptions to an acceptable safety level. The resilience capacity of a system encompasses absorptive, recovery and adaptive capacities. The absorptive capacity describes the ability to resist inca-pacitation (total reduction of system performance) and continue operation, when a single disruption or a series of disruptions occurs. The recovery capacity is the ability to survive disruptions by taking recovery actions, that bring back the system to an acceptable, but possibly reduced, safety level. The adaptive capacity expresses the ability of the system to take actions that lead it to the pre-disruptive safety level or higher.

Abstract

Maritime transportation systems (MTS) are dynamic and complex systems, potentially exposed to various predictable and unpredictable disruptions of human, technical, environmental and organizational origin. Resilience is an overarching concept that extends the boundaries of risk by including the ability to “bounce back” from disruptions to an acceptable safety level. The resilience capacity of a system encompasses absorptive, recovery and adaptive capacities. The absorptive capacity describes the ability to resist inca-pacitation (total reduction of system performance) and continue operation, when a single disruption or a series of disruptions occurs. The recovery capacity is the ability to survive disruptions by taking recovery actions, that bring back the system to an acceptable, but possibly reduced, safety level. The adaptive capacity expresses the ability of the system to take actions that lead it to the pre-disruptive safety level or higher.
