About this book

Containing edited versions of the papers presented at the Oil and Hydrocarbon Spills, Modelling, Analysis and Control Conference, this volume features coverage of the following topics: Modelling of Trajectory and Fate of Spills; Contingency Planning and In-Situ Countermeasures; Experimental and Laboratory Analysis; Shoreline Protection and Cleanup; Toxicity Testing; Risk Assessment; Field Experiments; Remote Sensing; Cleanup Measures; Case Studies.


SECTION 1: MODELLING OF TRAJECTORY AND FATE OF SPILLS Quantifying environmental implications of alternative oil spill contingency and response plans; Oil spill movement in coastal seas:modelling and numerical simulations; A prototype statistical approach of oil pollution in the Mediterranean Sea; Forecasting accidental marine pollution drift: the French operational plan; Spatial data quality and coastal spill modelling; Weathering of oil spills accounting for oil components; Evolution of oil trajectory, fate and impact assessment models; Mathematical modelling of groundwater quality and development methodology for prediction of pollution; Some recommendations for testing oil spill computer models. SECTION 2: CONTINGENCY PLANNING AND IN-SITU COUNTERMEASURES The U.S. Minerals Management Service - oil spill response research program; Smoke plume screening tool for in-situ burning. SECTION 3: EXPERIMENTAL AND LABORATORY ANALYSIS Investigations on organics in the Libyan beach sand and water: extraction, spectroscopy and gas chromatography, Zwarah to East Tripoli coastline; Chemical and toxicological characterisation of water accommodated fractions relevant for oil spill situations; Laboratory tests of oil spreading under the ice cover; Measurements of oil spill spreading in a wave tank using digital image processing. SECTION 4: SHORELINE PROTECTION AND CLEANUP Hydrodynamic characteristics of water-jet pump for removing oils; Natural degradation of hydrocarbons in sandy soils and its potential application to disposal of oil-contaminated materials; Removal by pumping of a LNAPL lens floating on the phreatic surface; Assessment of the risk of shore contamination by offshore oil spills: model formulation. SECTION 5: TOXICITY TESTING Trace metal analysis using ion chromatography in water partitioned from crude-oil spills; Contamination of aromatic hydrocarbons in environmental samples after the Nakhodka oil spill. SECTION 6: RISK ASSESSMENT Perception or reality: oil spill risks on salmon; Risk assessment and cost-benefit techniques as management tools for oil spill prevention. SECTION 7: FIELD EXPERIMENTS Diffusion experiment in the Split harbour (middle Adriatic Sea); Field experiments with subsurface releases of oil and dyed water. SECTION 8: REMOTE SENSING Multispectral fluorometric sensor for real time in-situ detection of marine petroleum spills; The application of remote sensing techniques to create a Black Sea coastal response strategy for oil spill response. SECTION 9: CLEANUP MEASURES Solvent enhanced bioremediation of weathered oil contamination; Removing mineral oil residues from beaches with vegetable oils; Control and recovery of spilled oil by using ice boom. SECTION 10: CASE STUDIES - An oil spill model for Cook Inlet and Shelikof Strait, Alaska; The oil spill modelling in the Sea of Japan: Application to the tanker 'Nakhodka' 1997 incident
