HOUSTON (May 27, 2010) The Rice University-led international journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry (ET&C) this week released a special free virtual edition that makes available 25 previously released full studies on the Exxon Valdez oil spill. It also provides access to abstracts of more than 70 oil-related science studies published over the publication's 29-year history. The special online edition is available at http://www.setacjournals.org/view/0/virtualissueoilspills.html.
ET&C founder and editor-in-chief Herb Ward, professor of civil and environmental engineering and ecology and evolutionary biology at Rice University, said the journal is releasing this material as a public service.
"While the Exxon Valdez accident was a wholly different type of oil spill than what we are facing in the Gulf of Mexico, through the years we have published many peer-reviewed articles on the occurrence, fate and effects of oils and oil spills in the environment, including the Exxon Valdez oil spill," Ward said. "We are providing these previously released studies for free to help educate decision-makers, the public and the media in the wake of the April 20 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico."
Wiley-Blackwell co-publishes and distributes the journal for the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry.
The following are the 25 papers representing ET&C's complete archive on the Valdez incident from an electronic search of its database; the only modification of the search results has been to arrange the papers in chronological order. For extensive additional reading on oil-spill-related topics, such as toxicity and bioaccumulation, degradation and fate, and surfactants, go to http://www.setacjournals.org/view/0/etcrelatedarticles.html.
ET&C's sister journal, Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management, has published its collection on oil-spill-related topics at http://www.setacjournals.org/view/0/ieamfeaturedoilspills.html.
