Spills, Sediment, and Shoreline Contamination
A recent paper in Reviews of Geophysics describes the formation and behavior of oil-sediment residues in marine and coastal environments following an oil spill.
Oil spills in the ocean can have a devastating effect on marine and coastal ecosystems. In an article recently published in Reviews in Geophysics, Gustitus and Clement  describe the formation, fate and impact of oil-sediment residues, particularly in nearshore marine environments. The editor asked the authors to explain more about these oil-sediment residues, how they behave in the ocean and at the coast, and recent developments in this field of research....more
