  • Polar hydrocarbons within surface water column following an oil spill.
  • Modeling the photo-enhanced toxicity of organic compounds at the sea surface requires a dual dose approach.
  • Use of Hydrocarbon Blocks for modeling the transport, fate and exposure of complex mixtures such as crude oils.
