Effects and uptake and excretion kinetics of 11 selected PAHs in Arctic lipid rich copepods
Increased ice cap melting is opening up new areas in the Arctic to human activities such as oil exploration. Offshore oil production releases large quantities of hydrocarbons into the marine environment, notably as produced water and oil droplets. The PWC-Arctic project endeavors to assess the poten...
Maternal polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) transfer and effects on offspring of copepods exposed to dispersed oil with and without oil droplets
Copepods of the genus Calanus have the potential for accumulating lipophilic oil components due to their high lipid content and found to filter and ingest oil droplets during exposure. As female copepods produce eggs at the expense of lipid storage, there is a concern for transfer of lipophilic cont...
Application of gas chromatography/tandem mass spectrometry to determine a wide range of petrogenic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in small samples of oil exposed fish egg
Oil droplet fouling and differential PAH toxicokinetics in embryos of Atlantic haddock and cod.
Acute and physical effects of water-based drilling mud in the marine copepod Calanus finmarchicus
Automatic determination of heart rates from microscopy videos of early life stages of fish
Toxic effects of organic hydrophobic contaminants include impacts on fish heart rate (HR) and cardiac functioning. Thus, in ecotoxicology as well as aquaculture and even medicine, fish heart functioning plays an important role in application areas. The aim of this study was to assemble a pipeline of...
Oil droplet fouling and differential toxicokinetics of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in embryos of Atlantic haddock and cod
The impact of crude oil pollution on early life stages (ELS) of fish, including larvae and embryos, has received considerable attention in recent years. Of the organic components present in crude oil, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) are considered the main class of compounds responsible for ...
2017:00007 A - SubSea Dispersant lnjection (SSDI)- a "state of the art" and the need for further documentations
The aim of this pre-project has been to give a "State-of the art" and describe the R&D challenges and documentation needed in order to perform robust NEBA (Net Environmental Benefit Analysis) where SubSea Dispersant Injection (SSDI) is included as an acceptable countermeasure option. In spill sc...
Exposure to crude oil micro-droplets causes reduced food uptake in copepods associated with alteration in their metabolic profiles
Acute oil spills and produced water discharges may cause exposure of filter-feeding pelagic organisms to micron-sized dispersed oil droplets. The dissolved oil components are expected to be the main driver for oil dispersion toxicity; however, very few studies have investigated the specific contribu...
