CharacteristicsofOilandOilSpills
3.2.1.

PropertiesofOil

Oil contains a variety of different types of hydrocarbons. The actual composition is dependent
upon its origins. Oil may also contain a variety of impurities such as sulphur and nitrogen
products. Generally, oil is of relatively low toxicity, however this is dependent upon the
propertiesofthesourceoil.Therouteofhumanexposureisviainhalationandskinabsorption.
3.2.2.

BehaviorofOilonWater

Oilspiltontoawatersurfacewillspreadandevaporateatvaryingratesandtovaryingdegrees,
dependent upon the oil characteristics and weather conditions. This process, known as
weathering, my bring about a number of chemical and physical processes, which change the
compoundsthatmakeupoil.
The type of oil spilt has a major effect on the outcome of a spill incident, very light oils will
naturallydisperseandevaporatequicklyreducingthelevelofpollutant,whilstheavieroils will
persist and in some cases may form emulsions which are very resistant to biodegradation.
