Description:

Chocolate mousse is a name given to a particular combination of oil and water that sometimes forms when oil is spilled. This publication provides information on oil spills, how to prevent them, and how to clean them up. Topics include the properties of crude and refined petroleum, issues with tankers and transporting oil by ship, preparedness, and response. There is also an experiment in which students try cleaning up a simulated oil spill, using different sorbent materials, and discover why it is such a difficult task. Links to a glossary are embedded in the text. A French translation is available.
