The value of offshore field experiments in oil spill technology development for Norwegian waters
The blowout on the Ekofisk field in the North Sea in 1977 initiated R&D efforts in Norway focusing on improving oil spill contingency in general and more specifically on weathering processes and modeling drift and spreading of oil spills. Since 1978, approximately 40 experimental oil spills have...

Oil fate and weathering processes in ice-vovered waters. A Fram center state-of-the-art report.
Oil spill response is demanding under any circumstances and Arctic conditions impose additional environmental and logistical challenges. The most obvious challenge is dealing with the presence of ice. However, understanding the fate and behaviour of oil in Arctic and ice-covered waters is a fundamen...
