OIL SPILLS IN THE ARCTIC OCEAN: EXTENT OF SPREADING AND POSSIBILITY OF LARGE-SCALE THERMAL EFFECTS
The following points are discussed: (i) oil transport by the large-scale motion of the ice pack, (ii) mixing of oil into the underlying water column, and (iii) difficulties involved in the clean-up of oil trapped in pressure ridges and undeformed ice.
