I work at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife in Sacramento, California. I LOVE the animations on the Boom page of your website showing "encirclement," "v formation," etc.
My question is, can I use your annimations in a video I am doing on Boom? If I have your permission, I will include your company name in my credits. Please respond as soon as you can about this and let me know the easiest way to get the annimations.

Good Evening, Mark Francis. I'm writing an academic work which aims to evaluate a Terminal's oill spill response capability.
Inspite of Individual Emergence Plan presents the amount of oil (m³) likely to be spilled, it doesn't show how to measure booms' length taking into account the daily capacity of oil recovery (CEDRO) which was established by resolução CONAMA 2008 (brazilian environmental rule).
Then, I ask you: Is it possible to calculate the amount of booms deployed accordind the amount of oil spilled?
By the way I'm glad for getting in touch with your web site. It's astonishing! Another oil spill expert, Paulo Magioli, suggested it to me in order to increase my knowledge about chemical dispersants.
very well informed site for my recent dive back into the pool of oil spill response professionals.
Mark - Regarding your latest contribution in the ISCO Newsletter, you refer to "carbon absorption" as a liquid "chemically" bonding with the carbon particles. This is technically incorrect. The adhesion of an organic liquid to a carbon particle is "physical" not chemical. The process is adsorption as opposed to absorption, according to ASTM Performance Standards. "Swelling" of the sorbent material must occur for absorption to occur, which is evidence of the integration of the liquid into the solid matrix of the sorbing material. This is evident in the "water-sensitive" super-absorbent polymers found in disposable baby diapers and oil-sensitive SAPs such as Imbiber Beads. Regards - JSB
Outstanding information provided. I would be honored to be included in your seminars later on in 2013 and knowledge sharing concerning a product we manufacture called SorbaSolv. I've written a white paper that I presented at Interspill2012 and is on the Spill International web site for review. I'm always intrerested in hands on training to be a on site agent, and any information you can share is appreciated.

Very interesting website! I'm looking for more information on an hystorical note you report in the "inlandspills" page, the water supply contamination of a town in south of England during the 90's, due to a stockpile of fuel and oil for the "D Day" invasion of France during WW2.
Which town was? how deep was the groundwater level?
Thank you very much,
Very useful website - thank you! I would like to reference a graphic that you display on your website, which shows the land-sea boom travelling up and down with the tide. However, the reference to www.oilspilltraining.com is not valid? Are you able to provide me with the link to the website where this graphic came from please?Thanks!
OSS is the company's oil spill contingency that the world needed.
your site is very comprehensive in providing information on spill containment and spill repsonse products, services, and regualtions througout the united states and the internationally. After the BP diaster that took my beloved Gulf Coast apart, we all need to be aware of the dangers of such as diasater to the environment and families it effected.
I used this to write my discussion section of my Science Fair. Thank you so much! Only site that really helped me with iformation about skimmers. Keep up the good work!
