The Science Of Deepwater Oil Spills – Results from the 2013 Marine Scotland Science Workshop

doi:

Scottish Marine and Freshwater Science Vol 5 No 3

The workshop on “The Science Of Deepwater Oil Spills – Modelling” held in Aberdeen in September 2013 included more than 50 experts drawn from academia, government, consultants and industry to discuss aspects of the science needed to respond in an effective way to a deepwater oil spill west of Shetland. Experts in oceanography, circulation modelling, oil dispersion modelling, oil spill response and deepwater ecology were present. Throughout the four sessions of the workshop, certain themes and ideas were repeated by the participants. These have led to a series of recommendations being made, which are discussed in the report.
