WEATHERING OF SPILLED OIL AND METHODS OF ACCELERATING
This paper reviews the weathering and documented temporary effects of oil spills, and summarizes the advantages of chemically dispersing oil slicks. No attempt is made to give complete literature citations, but rather to select recent studies that highlight the various processes involved. For some processes, there are abundant studies; for others, few. Some areas require additional investigations to substantiate preliminary information. Additional details and more complete discussion of oil spills and their effects are given in the National Academy of Sciences Report "Petroleum in the Marine Environment" and by McAuliffe et al., and McAuliffe.
