Fate and behaviour of weathered oil drifting into sea ice, using a novel wave and current flume
Scenario-based recommendations for operative oil spill response in the Arctic - FateIce WP5A - OC2019 A-159
Project Recommendations for Response to Oil Spills from Condensates and Light Crude Oils - Thin Oil Film (TOF) Project - OC2017 A-205
This Project Recommendation is a guide for assistance in establishing operational oil spill response strategies for thin oil films of condensates and light crude oils. The Recommendations are based upon the results and findings from the TOF project. Here we describe a method for predicting the...
The value of offshore field experiments in oil spill technology development for Norwegian waters
The blowout on the Ekofisk field in the North Sea in 1977 initiated R&D efforts in Norway focusing on improving oil spill contingency in general and more specifically on weathering processes and modeling drift and spreading of oil spills. Since 1978, approximately 40 experimental oil spills have...
Simulering av oljeutslipp i russisk Arktis vestlige sektor (overstatt tittel fra russisk)
Oil fate and weathering processes in ice-vovered waters. A Fram center state-of-the-art report.
Oil spill response is demanding under any circumstances and Arctic conditions impose additional environmental and logistical challenges. The most obvious challenge is dealing with the presence of ice. However, understanding the fate and behaviour of oil in Arctic and ice-covered waters is a...
