Paper Abstract

The paper presents an analysis of the influence of volumetric solar radiation absorption on vertical temperature profiles changes and the thickness of mixed sea layer in the case of occurrence of crude oil pollution. The simulations were done for Southern Baltic in spring-summer season for the case of surface and volumetric pollution in the form of oil film and emulsion, respectively. The results of calculations show that, in dependence of the kind and amount of crude oil, the magnitude of the mixed sea layer thickness drop is in the range from 1 up to 9 meters, while the magnitude of the mixed sea layer temperature growth is in the range 0,05 + 10,2 °C.
