Record #143103:

Effects of experimental spills of crude and diesel oil on Arctic vegetation / Christian Bay.

Title: Effects of experimental spills of crude and diesel oil on Arctic vegetation / Christian Bay.
Author(s): Bay, Christian.
Date: 1997.
Publisher: Copenhagen: NERC
Abstract: Studies were carried out in 1982 before oil exploration. North Sea crude and arctic diesel oil were applied to five major plant communities at Mesters Vig to determine vulnerability of plant species. Effect was immediate, crude more severe than diesel. 11 years later, recovery was less than 1% in woody species, herbs and graminoids. Mosses in wet soils recovered well. Reasons are suggested for effects noted. First fertile plants appeared 6 years after spills.
