OIL SPILLS AND COMBATING OIL IN CONDITIONS
Author : Kari Lampela, Jorma Rytk?nen
The risk of a marine oil spill increases with the increasing presence and interest in shipping, offshore exploration and tourism activities in the Arctic, the Antarctic and other ice-affected waters, such as the Baltic Sea, Bohai Sea and Yellow Sea, Sea of Okhotsk and north Caspian Sea. However the Arctic and ice covered seas are highly vulnerable because of the harmful consequences of oil. Thus, increased awareness of the risks and the options available to respond to oil spills are needed.
