This spill shows up in just about all the biggest spill lists using the OSIR derived number of 28.4MMG. This is about 100,000 tons. However, the only tanker at the time with the name of Julius Schindler was an 18,250 dwt Ernst Russ ship built in 1955. When I was at MIT in the 70's, I had never heard of this spill which would have been the second largest in the world at the time. It does not show up in Hooke. The OSIR number is simply not believable; the CEDRE number is. Yet the number you will find just about everywhere ]is the preposterous 28.4 million gallons. The Ernst Russ site says the Julius Schlinder was sold to Panama in 1971-09-29, Miramar agrees and gives new name Albarosa, which was scrapped in 1975. So the ship apparently survived the casualty. Other than that we know nothing.
