The role of dispersants in oil spill remediation : fundamental concepts, rationale for use, fate, and transport issues John, Vijay; Arnosti, Carol; Field, Jennifer; Kujawinski, Elizabeth B.; McCormick, Alon (The Oceanography Society, 2016-09)Offering a scientific perspective, this paper provides a rationale for the use of dispersants in oil spill remediation by discussing their formulations and modes of action and connecting their physics and chemistry to a ...
Tarr, Matthew; Zito, Phoebe; Overton, Edward B.; Olson, Gregory M.; Adhikari, Puspa L.; Reddy, Christopher M. (The Oceanography Society, 2016-09)Crude oil is a complex mixture of many thousands of mostly hydrocarbon and nitrogen-, sulfur-, and oxygen-containing compounds with molecular weights ranging from below 70 Da to well over 2,000 Da. When this complex mixture ...
Photochemical oxidation of oil reduced the effectiveness of aerial dispersants applied in response to the Deepwater Horizon spill Ward, Collin P.; Armstrong, Cassia J.; Conmy, Robyn N.; French-McCay, Deborah P.; Reddy, Christopher M. (American Chemical Society, 2018-04-25)Chemical dispersants are one of many tools used to mitigate the overall environmental impact of oil spills. In principle, dispersants break up floating oil into small droplets that disperse into the water column where they ...
