      the dispersed oil within the deep-sea plume ultimately was deposited on the seafloor (and deep-sea corals) associated with a brown flocculent material, or floe (White et al., ; Stout, a). In addition, a buoyant fraction of the oil released traveled to the sea surface where it was spread by wind and currents over vast areas of the northern.   Philippe Cousteau emerging from a dive in the Gulf of Mexico oil spill.

Get this from a library. Probable behaviour and fate of a winter oil spill in the Beaufort Sea. [NORCOR Engineering and Research Limited.; Canada. Environmental Emergency Branch. Research and Development Division.;] -- With increasing levels of offshore petroleum exploration in the Beaufort Sea, there is an urgent need to be able to define the behaviour and fate of a major winter oil spill.

Probable Behaviour and Fate of a Winter Oil Spill in the Beaufort Sea (Fisheries and Environment Canada Technology Devt. Rep. EPSEC–5), NORCOR Research & Engng Co, Yellowknife (NWT), pp. Google ScholarCited by: 3. The behavior and fate of oil in the Arctic, and in other ice-containing marine environments, is modified by the presence of the ice and by the lower temperature (Fingas and Hollebone, ).

The different ice conditions largely dictate the fate and behavior of oil in a specific situation. to provide new knowledge of oils' fate and behaviour when drifting into the ice edge or in scattered ice conditions as a foundation for establishing robust oil spill response technologies, strategies and operations for such spill scenarios.

The risk is very real, but too often our ideas about it are shaped by media images, rather than by information and science.

The truth is that we really have very little information about what an oil spill in the Arctic would look like – where and how the oil would travel, how it would interact with ice, where it would reach important areas for ecosystems and wildlife. "The Arctic and Marine Oilspill Program - AMOP", Proceedings of the Alaska Arctic Offshore Oil Spill Workshop, National Institute of Standards and Technology, NIST SP, Aprilp Expansion of oil pipelines in western Canada will significantly increase tanker traffic and the probability of oil spills in the Salish Sea.

To study the potential environmental effects from an oil spill, a state-of-the-art three-dimensional oil spill model was forced by a newly developed, high-resolution, hydrodynamic and atmospheric model, to simulate the fate and transport of three selected Cited by: 2.

Numerical Prediction of Oil Spill Trajectory and Fate oil spill trajectory and fate in the Pearl River estuary. The model spilled oil at sea (Wang, ) [2]. Oil in the sea from anthropogenic sources, whether from spills or chronic releases, is perceived as a major environmental problem. Major oil spills occur occasionally and receive considerable public attention because of the obvious attendant environmental damage, including oil-coated shorelines and dead or moribund wildlife, especially oiled seabirds and marine mammals.

Important factors related to the impact of an oil-spill on wildlife include the spread of the oil slick, the type of oil spilled, its movement and weathering characteristics, the location of the spill, the area of estuary, sea and foreshore impacted by oil, the sensitivity of the regional environment, e.g.
