    This book provides a clear and concise overview of the present level of knowledge and expertise in the field of oil spill response. It covers the behaviour and fate of different types of oil when spilled and the effects on marine and coastal resources. Guidance is given on aerial surveillance, the at-sea measure of containment and recovery, and the use of chemical dispersants, and there are. In his book “Human Error”, James Reason put forward a model of how systems fail by describing a system as a set of layers of Swiss cheese with holes in random a path exists through all the layers (i.e., there is an alignment of holes in each layer) then an incident will occur. This model is not perfect but it is instructive in the sense that there are normally multiple things.

Oil pollution of marine habitats >Oil pollution is one of the most conspicuous forms of damage to the marine environment. Oil enters the seas not only as a result of spectacular oil tanker or oil rig disasters, but also – and primarily – from diffuse sources, such as leaks during oil extraction, illegal tank-cleaning operations at sea, or discharges into the rivers which are then carried.

Bill Freedman, in Environmental Ecology (Second Edition), Oil Spillage. Oil pollution can be caused by any spillage of crude oil or its refined products. However, the largest and most damaging pollution events usually involve spills of petroleum or heavy bunker fuel from disabled tankers or drill platforms at sea, from barges or ships on major inland waterways, or from blowouts of.

The largest source of oil pollution is runoff from land -- used engine oil and municipal and industrial wastes, according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. Other sources include offshore drilling discharges, tank cleanups and traffic, particulate oil in air pollution. damaged land, accidents and fires, and incidents of air and water pollution have all been recorded at various times and places.

In recent times the social impact of operations, espe-cially in remote communities, has also attracted attention.

The oil and gas industry has worked for a long time to meet the challenge of providing environmental.

Water pollution in the United States is a growing problem that became critical in the 19th century with the development of mechanized agriculture, mining, and industry, although recent regulation has drastically reduced water pollution throughout the nation.

Extensive industrialization and rapid urban growth exacerbated water pollution as a lack of regulation allowed for toxic discharges into.
