Persistent organic pollutants (POPs) monitoring and management in typical semi-enclosed bays is a major global environmental issue. This study concentrated on a questionnaire survey and analysis of marine environmental management and monitoring departments at all levels in China, and proposed suggestions on the construction and improvement of POPs monitoring and Author: Wenlu Zhao, Huorong Chen, Jun Wang, Mingyu Zhang, Kai Chen, Yali Guo, Hongwei Ke, Wenyi Huang, Lihua. The devastating environmental impacts of the Exxon Valdez spill in and its media notoriety made it a frequent comparison to the BP Deepwater Horizon spill in the popular press in , even though the nature of the two spills and the environments impacted were vastly different. Fortunately, unlike higher organisms that are adversely impacted by oil spills, microorganisms Cited by: Survey of Chemical Spill Countermeasures provides a one-stop source of information on how to clean up spill sites in safe, acceptable ways. Because of the ever-growing need to maintain constant vigilance over hazardous chemicals and potential leaks and spills, this reference will become an important source for the practicing environmental.

The effects of oil spills on the fisheries depend on the nature of the oil. The nature of oil spilled and the physical and chemical properties that change over time is known as weathering which also affect oil spill.

The key processes for seafood exposure include evaporation, dispersion into the water column and sedimentation. In addition to this, a survey is also being conducted on the health effects of the oil spill on pregnant women and infants.

The health survey included questionnaires, health examinations, and specialized tests, which were used to assess how health status is affected by oil spill exposure levels. The purpose of the Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) rule is to help facilities prevent a discharge of oil into navigable waters or adjoining shorelines.

Hazardous materials incidents in included railroad incidents, 15, incidents involving for-hire highway vehicles, aircraft incidents, 47 ship or barge incidents, for a total. Although significant steps have been taken over the last 15 years to reduce the size and frequency of oil spills, the sheer volume of petroleum consumed in this country and the complex production and distribution network required to meet the demand make spills of oil and other petroleum products inevitable (NRC, ).Oil spill contingency plans, therefore, specify.
