The Use Of Chemicals in Oil Spill Response


The latest research and design developments in the area of oilspill control dispersants and other chemicals. This comprehensive volume provides up-to-date information on how best to deal with this environmental concern, with a special focus on three categories:

Laboratory Work: Testing oil spill dispersants, water-in-oil emulsion breakers, and performance evaluation methods for oil spill chemical dispersants.

Ecological Considerations: Marine life response to dispersed oil; resolving related ecological issues; and how dispersants perform under arctic conditions.

Operational Considerations: Dispersant application by Fire Monitor; a shoreline cleaner evaluation; oil droplet size measurements at sea; oil spill testing agents; and how breaking wave conditions impact chemical dispersants.
