The use of PAH, metabolite and lipid profiling to assess exposure and effects of produced water discharges on pelagic copepods
Vertical mixing and horizontal drift of oil spills: simulations with the opensource oil spill model OpenOil
Predictions from a subsea release of Oda crude oil related to oil spill response - Evaluation of response options - OC2019 A-117-
Oil weathering predictions have been performed using the Subsea module integrated in the SINTEF Oil Weathering Model (OWM) of a relevant subsea release from a pipeline rupture (batch release) at the Oda oil field. The OSCAR plume model was run to simulate the buoyancy of the rising plume and initial...
Using targeted and non-targeted screening analyses to assess bioaccumulation and toxicity of produced water components on copepod populations in the North Sea
Spreading and potential effects of marine fuel oil spills in the Arctic - Arcticfuels
In the ARCTICFUELS project we studied the effects of dissolved fractions of three fuel oils (MGO500, MGO1000 and IFO-LS) on developing cod embryo and larvae. Of the Three fuel oils tested, the MGO1000 displayed the highest toxicity when comparing toxicity based on dilution (% of initial water accomm...
Acute and sub-lethal effects of an anionic polyacrylamide on sensitive early life stages of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua)
Despite the possible increase in use of anionic polyacrylamide (APAM) in enhanced oil recovery operations, very little relevant information regarding ecotoxicity exists. The current study assessed acute and sub-lethal toxicity in sensitive early life stages (ELS) of Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua) expos...
Improving oil spill trajectory modelling in the Arctic
As petroleum development and other activities move further north, the potential for oil spills in ice-covered waters is of great concern. As a tool for contingency planning and forecasting during response, oil spill models play a key role. With the development of new, high-resolution coupled ice-oce...
Marine disposal of mine tailings: Impacts on pelagic ecosystem components in Norwegian fjords.
Marine Snow in the Context of Oil Spill Response
Marine snow (MS) forms naturally in the ocean and consists of living and non-living particles, involving mucus-producing phytoplankton and bacteria, detritus, faeces from zooplankton and fish and inorganic particles. In the context of oil spills, MS received attention as a possible source of oil sed...
