FACTORS CAUSING ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGES AFTER AN OIL SPILL

The paper discusses the nine most important factors that individually and in combined interaction result in different changes after different oil spills. The factors are--the type of oil spilled; the dose of oil, the physiography of the area of the spill; weather conditions at the time of the spill; the biota of the area; the season of the spill; previous exposure of the area to oil; exposure to other pollutants; and the treatment of the spill.
