ARCTEC INC COLUMBIA MD
Pagination or Media Count:
A Field Guide for Oil Spill Behavior was developed to provide the On-Scene Coordinator with the spill behavior information needed to assess whether timely and adequate containment and removal actions are taken. The field guide describes arctic ice conditions, the physical properties of oil as it weathers, oil spill behavior in cold water and ice conditions, and spill retention potential for the Alaskan shore line. The guide then uses six spill scenarios to show the user how to apply spill behavior information to solve real world problems. Addition keywords Beaufort Sea, Oil weathering blowouts, Evaporation, Viscosity, Density, Solubility, Dispersions, Combustibility, Emulsification, Biodegradation, Oxidation, Shores, and Interactions.
