Exxon Valdez Oil Spill: Fate and Effects in Alaskan Waters ASTM STP When the super tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground in March in northern Prince William Sound (PWS), Alaska and spilled nearly 42 million liters of crude oil, it was the largest spill in US history (Spies, Rice, Wolfe, & Wright, ).Nearshore environments were severely impacted by the spill and associated cleanup efforts, especially in the first three years subsequent to the spill (Peterson Cited by: Comment on “hydrocarbon composition and toxicity of sediments following the Exxon valdez oil spill in Prince William Sound, Alaska, make a convincing case that the narcotic toxicity of Exxon Valdez oil declined rapidly after the spill, the claim that all oil toxicity has similarly declined requires a higher standard of by: 6.

This study was conducted to assess the subtidal effects of the Exxon Valdez oil spill in a large embayment in Prince William Sound, AK.

A stratified random-sampling design was used to compare stations in an oiled bay, the Bay of Isles, with stations in Drier Bay, a bay that received little impact from the spill.

Nearshore transport of hydrocarbons and sediments following the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Personal Author: Following the Exxon Valdez oil spill, sediment traps were deployed in nearshore subtidal areas of Prince William Sound, Alaska (PWS) to monitor particulate chemistry and mineralogy.

Following the Exxon Valdez oil spill, sediment traps were deployed in nearshore subtidal areas of Prince William Sound, Alaska (PWS) to monitor particulate chemistry and mineralogy. Complemented by benthic sediment chemistry and core sample stratigraphy at the study sites, results were compared to historical trends and data from other Exxon.

The total numbers of microorganisms in sediments were relatively constant among sites for at least several months after con- tamination by oil from the Exxon Valdez spill, even though the number of hydrocarbon-degrading micro- organisms in many of the sediment samples increased following exposure to oil (based on data from summer ).Cited by: A natural regional petroleum hydrocarbon background has been identified in the subtidal sediments of Prince William Sound that is readily distinguished from Exxon Valdez spill oil by chemical fingerprinting methods.

This hydrocarbon background is derived from natural petroleum seeps in. Our main base of knowledge in high-latitude oil spill eVects are from a posteriori studies of ecosystem damage and recovery following the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Prince William Sound (e.g. Short. EPA informed Exxon on July 26 that it would support a proposal by the company to use bioremediation to aid in cleaning up the oil spilled from the Exxon Valdez in Prince William Sound.

In a letter to Exxon, EPA provided information that would support the use of bioremediation as a cleanup technique for the Valdez oil spill. Exposure to hydrocarbons ten years after the Exxon Valdez oil spill: Evidence from cytochrome PA expression and biliary FACs in nearshore demersal fishes.

Introduction. Crude oil spills periodically threaten coastal marine fisheries worldwide. In recent decades, damage caused by two oil spills has been particularly well-documented: the March Amoco Cadiz spill in the western English Channel (Cross et al.,Gundlach et al., ), and the March Exxon Valdez oil spill in Prince William Sound, Alaska, USA (Peterson,Rice et Cited by: Oil stranded by the Exxon Valdez spill has persisted in subsurface sediments of exposed shores for 16 years.

With annualized loss rates declining from ∼68% yr-1 prior to to ∼4% yr-1 afterweathering processes are retarded in both sediments and residual emulsified oil (“oil mousse”), and retention of toxic polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons is prolonged.

However, the public and regulatory and scientific communities have given more attention to the contamination of marine habitats.

This is because marine oil spills can have a serious economic impact on coastal activities, as well as on those who exploit the resources of the by: 4.In those areas where they ebook detected, spill hydrocarbons were generally a small increment to ebook natural petroleum hydrocarbon background.

Low levels of Exxon Valdez crude residue were present in and again in in nearshore subtidal sediments off some shorelines that had been heavily oiled. By these crude residues were heavily.
