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 ...

On the Norwegian continental shelf, there no petroleum activities in ice-covered waters today or planned for the near future. However, future petroleum activities in Arctic waters can take place in areas free of ice most of the year, but with the possibility of occasional drifting sea ice in the win...

This Project Recommendation is a guide for assistance in establishing operational oil spill response strategies for thin oil films of condensates and light crude oils. The Recommendations are based upon the results and findings from the TOF project. Here we describe a method for predicting the effii...

The blowout on the Ekofisk field in the North Sea in 1977 initiated R&D efforts in Norway focusing on improving oil spill contingency in general and more specifically on weathering processes and modeling drift and spreading of oil spills. Since 1978, approximately 40 experimental oil spills have...

Oil spill response is demanding under any circumstances and Arctic conditions impose additional environmental and logistical challenges. The most obvious challenge is dealing with the presence of ice. However, understanding the fate and behaviour of oil in Arctic and ice-covered waters is a fundamen...
