    Arctic Matters is an initiative by the Academies’ Polar Research Board (PRB) to highlight what science has illuminated about Arctic change and its potential impacts across the globe. The effort is timed with the United States’ two-year chairmanship (April April ) of the Arctic Council, which is a high-level intergovernmental forum that addresses a wide array of issues faced by the.   oil spill response scenarios for the prescribed OHF, and the quantity of oil scheduled to be transferred and/or transshipped, to a maximum of 10, metric tons In plans for prescribed OHFs in waters south of the sixtieth parallel of north latitude, you need to outline in detail the people and organizations who would respond to oil pollution.

    Oil spill trajectory and fate modeling in rivers can pose challenges due to the natural variability of waterways throughout the year. Two case studies are provided to demonstrate site-specific and season-specific modeling for an Enbridge full-scale exercise in the Wisconsin River and the Line 3 Replacement Project (L3RP) in Minnesota.

For more than 35 years, ASTM International standards have served as proven technical resources in oil spill response and cleanup operations. ASTM standards play a critical role in assisting stakeholders confronted with managing the environmental and economic consequences of a major oil spill.

    There are four courses in the series, which comprise an Introductory level - aimed at providing a general introduction and awareness to oil spill preparedness and response; The probability of oil spill area extensions were estimated by a response surface method (RSM). Results showed reduced risk of pollution in icy water conditions and greater drift action of oil film. Accordingly, the spraying location and quantity of oil-dispersant could be rapidly specified.

COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

The analysis begins with a description of the environmental conditions that occur in Alaska that affect oil spill behavior and oil spill cleanup. The study then describes four spill scenarios in remote areas giving engineering details of the mechanics of the spill movement and the cleanup effort.

Responding to Oil Spills in the U.S. Arctic Marine Environment reviews the current state of the science regarding oil spill response and environmental assessment in the Arctic region north of the Bering Strait, with emphasis on the potential impacts in U.S.

waters. This report describes the unique ecosystems and environment of the Arctic and. 3 Arctic Oil Spill Response Research.

Large-scale work on oil spills in sea ice began in the early s in Canada and the United States with the Beaufort Sea Project and the Outer Continental Shelf Environmental Assessment Program, respectively (e.g., Lewis, ). Integrating Dispersants in Oil Spill Response in Arctic and Other Icy Environments Article in Environmental Science and Technology 52(11) April with 66 Reads How we measure 'reads'.

Spill scenarios used by the authorized oil spill response organization are based on spill volume rather than impacts, e.g., a tabletop exercise is conducted once every three years for a 10, tonne by: Oil in the Aquatic Environment: Sources, Fate, Effects, Monitoring and Response Options Trainers: ExxonMobil The purpose of this course is to describe the types of crude oils and refined petroleum substances that may be released into aquatic environments and the analytical and toxicological methods and models that are used to quantify fate and exposure, adverse effects and comparative risks of.

A massive oil spill can really muck up a coastline, as NOAA scientists learned when they raced to Alaska’s remote Prince William Sound in March In the wake of the Exxon Valdez oil spill—one of the worst U.S. spills in history—responders took shovels and hoses in hand.

Since then, NOAA has helped pioneer many state-of-the-art. The Hebei Spirit oil spill (HSOS) in December 7,was the worst oil spill recorded in Korea, with the release of approximat tons of crude oil and km of coastline polluted along the west coast of Korea.

Immediately after the spill, and based on the National Contingency Plan, the Korean Coast Guard, together with associated. "The Arctic and Marine Oilspill Program - AMOP", Proceedings of the Alaska Arctic Offshore Oil Spill Workshop, National Institute of Standards and Technology, NIST SP, Aprilp Emergency Response: The Oil Industry Spills Its Secrets.

With threats from hurricanes, spills, fires and more, the oil and gas industry presents a multitude of hazards – and just as many solutions to keep workers, the environment and facilities safe. Given the massive challenges associated with Arctic oil spill response (from production or from shipping), manuscripts are strongly encouraged that focus on the application of remote sensing to meet critical oil spill response needs in the harsh Arctic environment, both.

For instance, for marine oil spills, Transport Canada acts as the administrative agency which ensures appropriate level of preparedness for any oil spill incidents within prescribed time standards and operating environments (Guard, ).The Marine Oil Spill Preparedness and Response Regime, established inis built on a cooperation between government and by: 3.

The Deepwater Horizon (DWH) disaster released more oil into the Gulf of Mexico than any other spill in United States history. When oil spills happen, one of the first things responders do is refer to their guidance documents about which response tools (e.g., dispersants, booming, skimming) to use under which conditions (e.g., the type of oil, temperature, wind speed).

Objectives: 1) to improve the observation and predictions of oil spreading in the sea using novel on-line sensors on-board vessels, fixed structures or gliders, and smart data transfer into operational awareness systems; 2) to examine the true environmental impacts and benefits of a suite of marine oil spill response methods (mechanical collection in water and below ice, in situ burning, use.

The purpose of this progress report is to evaluate oil spill modeling research as a knowledge domain. Using bibliometric analysis techniques, we constructed a co-citation network for exploring key areas of research and seminal papers to highlight the Author: Jake R Nelson, Tony H Grubesic.

With billions of smartphones, tablets, laptop computers, and other Internet-connected devices in use worldwide, stand-alone apps have captured the world’s attention. GIS apps in particular have transformed how people think about geography.

speakerAsset. The Deepwater Horizon disaster released more oil into the Gulf of Mexico than any other spill in United States history. When it occurred, responders did what they usually do when oil spills happen: They referred to their guidance documents to select the best strategies to minimize risks to humans and ecosystems, especially sensitive areas such as coastlines.

A marker on the north shore of the Straits of Mackinac indicates where a pipeline enters the water in St. Ignace, Mich. Just west of the iconic bridge are two oil pipelines laid in that span the bottom of the Straits, the 5 mile-wide strip of water separating Lakes Michigan and Huron that is whipsawed by currents unlike anywhere else in the Great Lakes.

His research focuses on the impact of climate change on the Arctic environment, especially the decline in Arctic sea ice, Arctic shipping and shipping scenarios, the development of oil and gas resources off the coast of Alaska and Norway, and China’s geopolitical and geoeconomic interests in .Climate change research done by our faculty is truly global in nature, with current research projects in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South America, the Arctic and Antarctic.
