OLLI: SCI-02 Oil Spills in Sea Ice

ID : 7835   
« back to classes page
The federal government has opened up the entire Beaufort Sea Coast for oil exploration far out to sea. This coast is ice covered much of the year and will remain so for the foreseeable future. This coastal ice can be very dynamic and would distribute spilled petroleum over a very large area, causing extensive environmental damage. The object of this course is to study the possibility of an oil spill accident, the interaction between oil and ice, and the potential transport and fate of contaminated ice. Class participation is desired.
