Preface.

    Oil spills are one of the worst environmental disasters. Spilled or leaked oil can contaminate water, making it unsafe for animals and humans who live near the accident. Luckily, scientists have figured out ways to help reverse some of the effects of a spill. There are also ways to help prevent such disasters from happening in the future. Understanding the chemical properties of petroleum material released during a marine oil spill event is vital as the chemistry of the material dictates the physical properties of that material, such as density and viscosity, its behavior in water, and its biological impacts, which all govern its respective impact on and fate in the environment Cited by: 6.

      Water pollution can be broadly classified into two types – point source, where the source is identifiable and non-point source pollution, where the contaminant seems to be coming from throughout the place across the pollution can be elaborately classified depending on the cause of water pollution. Organic waste: This occurs due to the dumping of organic matter in the water. The aim is to increase understanding of the plastic pollution problem so more sustainable solutions are found, innovations implemented, and more people and organizations are empowered to take action to stop plastic pollution and live plastic-free. They aim to protect marine life by preventing plastic pollution from reaching the ocean, and.
