Abstract Experimental point source oil releases have been conducted in the Chesapeake Bay mouth area. Predictions of oil slick motion were tested, and slicks were sampled and analyzed to measure their aging rates over periods up to 32 hours. Remote sensing techniques were used to detect and measure the spreading rate of oil. Some laboratory oil film aging experiments were done to further document and elucidate aging processes. Results indicate a reasonable motion prediction, an explanation of the non-biological initial aging of oil films, and a fair corroboration of a theoretical oil spreading model. Indigenous surface films in the study area were analyzed for lipid and chlorinated hydrocarbon content. Hydrocarbons were 300-500 microgram per liter and fatty acids and esters 700-7800 microgram per liter in surface film samples. Chlorinated hydrocarbons were generally less than 100 parts per trillion in surface films, in contrast to some earlier high concentrations found in Biscayne Bay.
