A series of papers presented at the Biotechnology Forum workshop on oil spills in the marine environment in were contained in this publication. the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. A Comprehensive Approach to Problems with Oil Spills in Marine Environments: the Alaska Story. Princeton Scientific Publishing. and Oversight Five Years after the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill. Alaska Sea Grant Report, ; AK-SG , Introduction. Marine oil spills often refer to releases of liquid petroleum hydrocarbons into the ocean or coastal areas due to human activities (Li, Cai, Lin, Chen, & Zhang, ).They include the releases of crude oil from tankers, offshore platforms, drilling rigs, and wells; spills of refined petroleum products (such as gasoline and diesel) and their by-products; heavier fuels Cited by: 5. Oil spills are probable accidents occurring mostly during transportation and processing of oil that can contaminate marine, soil, sediments, and other environments. Oil spill is a special.
Oil dispersants (57 chemical ingredients approved for use by the US EPA) are a common tool used after oil spills in marine environments. They break up oil slicks on the water surface and increase the oil's rate of biodegradation. Oil dispersants are quickly used when other means, such as oil containment and removal, are insufficient.

In: Proceedings of the 17th Arctic and Marine Oil Spill Program (AMOP) Technical . Several key insights from this preliminary analysis demonstrate the importance of a systematic and comprehensive approach.

Despite this, spill experts estimate that 30%% of oil spills are either directly or indirectly caused by human error, with 20%% of all spills caused by equipment failure or malfunction.
This chapter provides a comprehensive review of marine oil spill preparedness and countermeasures, tackling topics such as preparedness and contingency planning, sensitivity and vulnerability, policies and regulations, cleanup technologies, oil trajectory and weathering modeling, early warning, response technology screening, net environmental benefit analysis, risk assessment, cleanup process simulation, and response decision-making. This is a non-fiction book about oil spills. It discusses mainly the major oil spill from the Exxon Valdez that spilled 11 million gallons of oil. This oil spill damaged 1, miles of Alaska's coastline. It also killed , animals/5(27).
