The Council has sponsored what we believe is one of the most complete compilations of articles written on oil spill dispersant research.
Note: Downloads in Microsoft Excel spreadsheet.
To aid in its dispersants investigation, the Council commissions literature reviews, which are focused on the question of efficacy in cold waters. These literature syntheses are an overview of the latest science on dispersants at the time the work was done, including key points, new trends, and areas where research is lacking.
