Abstract
Biodegradation of oil has been extensively studied over the last 20 years. As a result, the fate and microbial decomposition of oil in aquatic environments is well understood. Studies have shown that oil degradation can occur in cold-water environments. In response to the Exxon Valdez spill, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency assembled a panel of experts to determine what could be done to accelerate the natural biodegradation process in Prince William Sound.
