Luno II crude oil - properties and weathering at sea - related to oil spill response
MetadataShow full item record
A study of the weathering properties of Luno II has been performed using both small and meso-scale laboratory testing at two temperatures, 5°C and 13°C. The obtained data was used as input in the SINTEF Oil Weathering Model (OWM) to predict the fate and behaviour of Luno II in a spill situation at sea. The weathering properties are discussed in relation to oil spill response; mechanical recovery and chemical dispersion.
