Oil slick thickness is a key parameter for the behaviour of oil spilled at sea. It influences evaporation and entrainment, viable response options, and the risk to marine life at the surface. Determining this value is therefore of high relevance in oil spill modelling. In open water, oil can spread ...

Several laboratory studies have demonstrated that exposure to oil components cause toxicity to copepods, however, this has never been shown in natural populations of copepods. In the present study, we sampled copepods in an area of the North Sea with high density of oil production platforms discharg...

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...

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...

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...

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...
