Oil Spill Factors on
Land and Water
Oil Spill Factors on Land:
When an oil spill occurs on land, remote locations with little wildlife or public traffic leave less of a chance that the spill will be disturbed and spread over larger areas.
Warmth and wet conditions makes it difficult to control the substances from being absorbed into a larger area of soil. While cold temperature help to contain the spill as it is unable to absorb further into frozen ground.
Oil Spill Factors in Water:
Standing water such as marshes or swamps with little water movement are likely to incur more severe impacts than flowing water because spilled oil tends to "pool" in the water and can remain there for long periods of time. In calm water conditions, the affected habitat may take years to restore. Flowing water is less impacted by oil spills because the currents provide a natural cleaning.
Bio degradation and dispersing agents both tend to work best in warm water environments
