The effectiveness shows large variations between the dispersants dependant on seawater salinity. Salinity variation in Arctic surface water is, however, not considered as a major limitation for use of dispersants in Arctic regions, as it is considered as a “temporary” phenomenon under very static condition. Corexit 9500 was selected as the main test dispersant for the further meso-scale dispersibility testing in the JIP.
