This paper describes laboratory research performed to determine the effects of crude and diesel oils on the porous substructure of Arctic sea ice. It includes a qualitative description of what occurs when oil is placed under the ice and an evaluation of some quantitative measurements made to determine the maximum extent to which crude oil can spread in an Arctic environment.
