The oil spill dispersant (OSD) play an important role to deal with the frequent oil spills in the marine environment, which can effectively reduce the interfacial tension between the oil and the seawater. However, there are many studies showing the stability of the OSD effect changes over time, and is related with the wave. In this paper, the results show the OSD will gradually move away from the oil, and the quantity and speed of the removed OSD is influenced by the intensity and duration of the wave action. The stability mechanism of the OSD effect is proposed in this study. The results of this study provide methods for the research on the stability mechanism of the OSD, as well as the theoretical basis for the comprehensive evaluation and the rational use of the OSD.

"My experiences in publishing a paper with Bentham Open is good. I must say that the speed of publication in The Open Petroleum Engineering Journal is very fast. It takes only two month for the pioneer reviewing process. The delay was caused by me. And what’s more, the publisher’s office is quite helpful. I guess they are dealing with thousands emails every week, but they process my request in a very short period of time."
