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...

To understand the impact of oil contamination on marine microbial communities, numerous studies have been conducted following microbial dynamics after oil spills and concerning the effects of different environmental parameters on oil biodegradation potential. Nevertheless, there is a lack of underst...

Background This study investigates a comparative multivariate approach for studying the biodegradation of chemically dispersed oil. The rationale for this approach lies in the inherent complexity of the data and challenges associated with comparing multiple experiments with inconsistent sampling poi...

Oil-related aggregates (ORAs) may contribute to the fate of oil spilled offshore. However, our understanding about the impact of diatoms and associated bacteria involved in the formation of ORAs and the fate of oil compounds in these aggregates is still limited. We investigated these processes in mi...

Oil-related aggregates (ORAs) may result from interactions between chemically dispersed oil and particles (both biological and mineral) and have received considerable attention since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. In  a 3-year project we will investigate the relationship between chemically di...

With increasing oil exploration, production and transportation in the Arctic, predictions of the fate of spilled oil become important, including oil compound biodegradation. The use of chemical dispersants may result in increased biodegradation due to the generation of dispersions consisting of smal...
