DiTail: Marine disposal of mine tailings: Impacts on pelagic ecosystem Components in Norwegian fjords
Exploring microbial community succession in marine oil-related aggregates (ORAs)
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 dispers...
Biodegradation of Dispersed Oil in natural Seawaters from Western Greenland and a Norwegian fjord
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...
Comparison of Meso Scale Subsea gas Release With Multiphase Eulerian-Lagrangian CFD Model
We compare the observed dynamics of subsea starting plumes with multiphase computational fluid dynamics (CFD) simulations. In the event of subsea loss of containment of either natural gas or carbon dioxide it is important to understand how the gas disperses in the ocean column and acends to the surf...
Oil droplet surfacing probabilities using realistic low turbulence in Arctic ice
In situ characterisation of complex suspended particulates surrounding an active submarine tailings placement site in a Norwegian fjord
Suspended particle measurements over flood and ebb transects of a Norwegian fjord (Frænfjorden) with an active submarine mine tailings placement are presented. Measurements focused on characterisation of spatial variability in particle and floc size, and determination of suspended mine tailing conce...
