Marine Hydrocarbon Spill Assessments: From Risk of Spill through to Probabilities Estimates describes the methods used for estimating hydrocarbon spill risks and the potential consequences. Throughout the book, mathematical methodologies and algorithms are included to aid the reader in the solving of applied tasks presented. Marine Hydrocarbon Spill Assessments: From Risk of Spill through to Probabilities Estimates provides a fundamental understanding of the oil properties and processes which determine the persistence and impacts of oils in the marine environment. It informs the reader of the current research in hydrocarbon spill assessments, starting from an assessment of a risk of a spill, and moving on to modelling approaches to impact assessments, laboratory toxicity assessments, field impact assessments and response options, and prevention and contingency planning.

Key Features

  • Identifies efficient solutions to protect coastal regions from the marine pollution of hydrocarbon spills
  • Includes case studies examining and analyzing spills, providing lessons to prevent these in the future
  • Covers the science of oil spills from risk analysis to cleanup and the effects on the environment


Biological scientists, marine environmentalists, Aquatic Ecologists, conservationists, oil and gas, environmental management, environmental engineering and environmental remediation
