Oil Spills in Mangroves is the second in a series of publications prepared by NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration to provide response-related information on specific warm-water resources.

(Other publications in the series include Oil Spills in Coral Reefs and Oil and Sea Turtles.). Mangroves are highly vulnerable to oil spills because oil deposits on sensitive plant surfaces, affecting soils and dependant marine life causing death and sublethal impacts (Swan et al.,Duke et al.,Duke and Burns,NOAA, ).

This disruption affects ecosystem services of mangroves, like fisheries production and shoreline Cited by: Chapter 2, oil toxicity to mangroves, reviews the research available on oil toxicity and impacts to mangroves.

In Chapter 3, we discuss general guidance for responding to spills in mangroves and provide specific considerations for cleanup measures. Chapter 4 discusses long-term recovery of mangroves from oil spill impacts and restoration tech.

An oil spill is the release of a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon into the environment, especially the marine ecosystem, due to human activity, and is a form of term is usually given to marine oil spills, where oil is released into the ocean or coastal waters, but spills may also occur on spills may be due to releases of crude oil from tankers, offshore platforms, drilling.

Oil spill, leakage of petroleum onto the surface of a large body of water. Oceanic oil spills became a major environmental problem in the s, chiefly as a result of intensified petroleum exploration and production on continental shelves and the use of supertankers capable of transporting more thanmetric tons of oil.

Spectacular oil spills from wrecked or damaged supertankers are. IV mangroves are comprised of 3 species: red, black, and white mangroves. Red mangroves usually occur seaward of the other two species, and are most severely affected by oil spills. Red mangroves can be easily identified by their curving prop roots.

"The oil spill will affect fish species; many of them breed in mangroves. The chemicals sprayed to disperse the oil too would affect the marine ecology," said B F Chhapgar, a marine biologist.

"The chemical dispersants break the oil into small droplets which then settle at the bottom of the sea and affect marine life," he explained. the effects of oil spills on mangrove forests: a comparison of five oil spill sites in the gulf of mexico and the caribbean sea Charles D.

In February the oil tanker St. Peter sank in Colombian waters some 50 km west of Punta Manglades, and 34 tons of oil was spilled into the sea. The oil drifted toward the coast and much of it ended up in the mangroves on the border between Colombia and Ecuador (Hayes, ).

In total, at least milliontonnes of oil has been released into mangrove-lined, coastal waters, oiling possibly up to around millionha of mangrove habitat, and killing at least ,ha of mangrove vegetation since Cited by:
