Mainly moved from production centers to market using pipelines and tankers, the global transportation of oil presents considerable environmental risks. Contributors to this volume address these issues in edited versions of 32 papers presented at the Oil and Hydrocarbon Spills, Modeling, Analysis, and Control Conference held in Southampton, England in July 1998. Consisting of an international group of researchers, engineers, and managers, the contributors address both practical and theoretical topics including modeling of trajectory, contingency planning and in-situ countermeasures, experimental and laboratory analysis, shoreline protection and clean- up, toxicity testing, risk-assessment, field experiments, remote sensing, clean-up measures, and case studies.
