Oil spills in the marine environment
Fate and behavior of oil in the marine environment Complex processes of oil transformation in the marine environment start developing from the first seconds of oil's contact with seawater. The progression, duration, and result of these transformations depend on the properties and composition of the oil itself, parameters of the actual oil spill, and environmental conditions. The main characteristics of oil transformations are their dynamism, especially at the first stages, and the close interaction of physical, chemical, and biological mechanisms of dispersion and degradation of oil components up to their complete disappearance as original substances. Similar to an intoxicated living organism, a marine ecosystem destroys, metabolizes, and deposits the excessive amounts of hydrocarbons, transforming them into more common and safer substances.

March 16, off Portsall, France: wrecked supertanker Amoco Cadiz June 3, Gulf of Mexico: exploratory oil well Ixtoc 1 blew out, spilling an estimated 140 million gallons of crude oil into the open sea. Although it is the largest known oil spill, it had a low environmental impact. Nov. 1, Gulf of Mexico: estimated 2.6 million gallons of oil were released into the environment when Burmah Agate collided with the freighter Mimosa southeast of Galveston Entrance in the Gulf. Mar. 24, Prince William Sound, Alaska: tanker Exxon Valdez hit an undersea reef and spilled 10 million plus gallons of oil into the waters, causing the worst oil spill in U.S. history.

Bottomdwelling fish exposed to compounds released after oil spillsmay develop liver disease and reproductive and growth problems.
The text on this site is presented as an archival version of the script of "Ocean Planet," a 1995 Smithsonian Institution traveling exhibition. The content reflects the state of knowledge at the time of the exhibition, and has not been updated. The information on this buoy is divided into the three categories listed below.
When it comes to mixing oil and water, oceans suffer from far more than an occasional devastating spill. Disasters make headlines, but hundreds of millions of gallons of oil quietly end up in the seas every year, mostly from non-accidental sources
The graph below shows how many millions of gallons of oil each source puts into the oceans worldwide each year
Down the Drain: 363 Million Gallons
    Used engine oil can end up in waterways. An average oil change uses five quarts; one change can contaminate a million gallons of fresh water. Much oil in runoff from land and municipal and industrial wastes ends up in the oceans. 363 million gallons Road runoff adds up
    Every year oily road runoff from a city of 5 million could contain as much oil as one large tanker spill
Routine Maintenance: 137 Million Gallons
    Every year, bilge cleaning and other ship operations release millions of gallons of oil into navigable waters, in thousands of discharges of just a few gallons each. 137 million gallons

Oil Spills - A Fact Sheet
REVISION May 1, 2000 Tarred beaches, dead and dying wildlife, damaged fisheries, contaminated water supplies. These are the short-term effects of an oil spill. In the long-term, toxic materials from oil can remain in the water and on the land for many years. They can build up in the food chain to lethal levels, and destroy or disrupt and area's ecosystem. How Oil Spills Occur: Petroleum is used as a vehicle fuel, heating source for homes and industry, for electricity generation, and as a feedstock for the chemical industry. Because of the huge demand for oil, enormous quantities are moved from production areas to where the oil is used. Oil is pumped from the ground, refined, transported and stored. There are many steps in this process during which oil can spill from well heads, drill rigs, tankers, pipelines and storage tanks. Oil may leak from ocean-going ships during accidental and deliberate spills. Spills can happen on land or water when oil is incorrectly handled, there are railway or truck accidents, tankers or barges collide, the insides of tankers are washed, and when natural oil deposits seep. Sometimes when people change the oil in their cars, they dump the used, dirty oil on the ground or down the storm sewer. The rain carries the oil with the metals and particles from the car engine into streams and creeks. If you added up all the oil dumped on the ground in a year, it would equal or surpass a serious oil tanker spill.

The vessel went aground on 20 May 1988 as a result of cyclonic weather conditions, which caused it to drag its anchor. The Korean Star was declared a constructive total loss after it broke in two following the grounding. About 600 tonnes of fuel oil were lost from the vessel.

    The Effects of Maritime Oil Spills on Wildlife i ncluding Non-Avian Marine Life Oil Composition and Chemistry and the Effects on Wildlife To evaluate the consequences of oil spills on wildlife it is important to understand the properties and chemistry of crude oils and petroleum products. Oil, depending upon its form and chemistry, causes a range of physiological and toxic effects. For example, the low molecular weight aliphatics of oil can have anaesthetic properties and aromatic components such as benzine are known carcinogens and very toxic to humans and wildlife. Some polynuclear aromatics are also carcinogenic and toxic and, are concentrated in the food chain eg. in tissues of water filter feeding shell fish like mussels and oysters.(1) Volatile components of oil can burn eyes, burn skin, irritate or damage sensitive membranes in the nose, eyes and mouth. Hydrocarbons can trigger pneumonia if it enters lungs. Benzine, toluene and other light hydrocarbons of oil and fuels if inhaled, are transferred rapidly to the bloodstream from the lungs and can damage red blood cells, suppress immune systems, strain the liver, spleen and kidneys and even interfere with the reproductive system of animals and humans. In general, refined petroleum products tend to be more toxic to organisms but less persistent in the environment. Crude oils and heavy fuel oils like bunker fuels tend to be less toxic but are more persistent and more likely to have physical impacts on wildlife eg coating feather, fur and skin.

    The biggest spill was off Brittany in 1978
    Environmentalists are warning that if all 70,000 metric tons of fuel oil escape from the Prestige which broke up off the Spanish coast it could rank as one of the worst environmental disasters. Greenpeace spokesman Dr David Santillo says that making comparisons can be difficult as the impact depends on the type of oil spilled, the weather conditions and the sensitivity of the region. The Exxon Valdez spilled 38,800 tons of crude oil into Prince William Sound in Alaska in 1989 and it took many years for the area to recover. Change of law Dr Santillo, who works for the Greenpeace research laboratory at Exeter University in the UK, explained that a combination of shallow water and a poor flush of water through the Sound magnified the impact of the spill on a particularly sensitive region. Many seabirds have been affected by the Prestige disaster
    More recently, in 1999, the Erika spilled 13,000 tons of heavy diesel oil off the coast of Brittany - a disaster which led to a change in the laws governing the shipment of oil by tanker.

    Oil spills, such as that of Brittany in 1999, can kill huge numbers of birds and animals
    BBC News Online's Kate Milner examines oil spills to see how much damage they cause and whether and how well wildlife recovers. The long-term effect of an oil spill is the subject of much debate among scientists. Some argue that animals and birds are harmed many years after the event, but others believe wildlife is more resilient.
    Oil is not persistent - it's not that toxic
    Dr Paul Kingston According to some scientists, otters and other animals are still suffering nearly 12 years after the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska. It was not the world's largest oil spill but is widely regarded as the worst in terms of damage to the environment. The tanker went aground in Prince William Sound in March 1989, spilling an estimated 42 million litres of crude oil - enough to fill 125 Olympic-sized swimming pools.
