Abstract

The factors controlling the aqueous concentration of oils spilled into rivers are examined using a recently developed two-phase riverine spill model. The aqueous concentration was found to be highly dependent upon the factors that control the dissolution of an oil into the water column and also upon factors that control the evaporation of the slick. Additionally, the aqueous concentration of a particular compound can be affected by the behavior of other compounds in the oil.
