The primary objective of the research project MOSIDEO is to advance our knowledge of the interactions between oil and sea ice pore structure and develop parametrised description of oil behaviour and its influence on radar signals. This is a prerequisite for risk assessment and contingency planning of oil spills in sea ice-covered waters.
MOSIDEO is supported under the PETROMAKS2 program
