Microbial degradation of petroleum compounds in cold marine water and ice / Odd G. Brakstad, Andrew M. Booth, Liv-Guri Faksness.

Title: Microbial degradation of petroleum compounds in cold marine water and ice / Odd G. Brakstad, Andrew M. Booth, Liv-Guri Faksness.
Author(s): Brakstad, Odd G.
Booth, Andrew M.
Faksness, Liv-Guri.
Date: 2009.
Publisher: London: Taylor & Francis
In: Polar microbiology : the ecology, biodiversity and bioremediation potential of microorganisms in extremely cold environments. (2009.),
Abstract: Discusses interactions between discharged oil and marine microorganisms in cold seawater and marine ice; also some concerns related to persistent oil compounds in polar regions. Recent studies indicate that natural microbial biodegradation of some crude oil hydrocarbons can proceed in Arctic environments, but that low temperatures significantly reduce biodegradation rate. In addition, presence of sea ice can severely influence crude oil biodegradation by locking it away within ice. Subsequent movement of sea ice and seasonal spring melt can result in occurrence of new pollution events when trapped crude oil is released in new location.
