Evaluation and characterization of physical properties, chemical composition and behavior of petroleum products is crucial to predict environmental behaviour in the event of spills. This information can inform the prediction and modeling of fate and behavior of the oils in different environmental conditions. Good models of oil and petroleum products fate and behaviours are essential for spill preparedness planning, environmental effects and impact assessments, and choosing response and countermeasure strategies for the cleaning of spills. This database is a collection of physical properties, chemical compositions and simulated environmental behaviors of unrefined crude oils and refined petroleum products (including diesels, biodiesels, crude oils, intermediate and fuel oils, bitumen and diluted bitumen).

This dataset consists of information from reports received by the Spills Action Centre (SAC). They are generated and completed by SAC following the initial report of a spill. The data includes: * the reference number assigned to the spill * the municipality in which the spill occurred * what was impacted (e.g. land, water, air, or combination) * the substance being discharged (e.g.

The Planning for an Environmental Response (PIER) initiative falls under the umbrella of the Government of Canada's Oceans Protection Plan (OPP), whose goal is preserving marine ecosystems vulnerable to increased transportation and the development of the marine industry (https://pm.gc.ca/en/news/backgrounders/2016/11/07/canadas-oceans-protection-plan-preserving-and-restoring-canadas). The PIER was established in response to recommendations made in a 2013 report "A review of Canada's ship-source spill preparedness and response regime " by the Tanker Safety Expert Panel (https://tc.canada.ca/en/marine-transportation/marine-safety/tanker-safety-expert-panel). One of the recommendations calls on Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) to work with Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) to collect and compile information on sensitive species and environments for each Canadian Coast Guard (CCG) response area and make it publicly available. The PIERs’ main mandate is to acquire and update biological sensitivity data under its jurisdiction for preparation and response purposes in the event of an oil spill.

A literature review, focusing on oil sand products (e.g., diluted bitumen), diluents, spill-treating agents, and crude oil toxicology and ecological studies, relevant to the northeast Pacific was compiled as part of the Government of Canada’s World Class Tanker Safety program. Of the 763 references identified, 14 involved diluted bitumen and other heavy crude oils, indicating the need for further research of these products in the marine environment. Diluent research suggests relatively fast evaporation and dispersion times for this component, however high toxicities may pose a threat to marine biota. Historical studies indicate older dispersant formulations had potential ecological implications, therefore newer formulations, which have not been studied in detail, require full assessment.

This dataset is part of Environment and Climate Change Canada’s Shoreline Classification and Pre-Spill database. Shoreline classification data has been developed for use by the Environmental Emergencies Program of Environment and Climate Change Canada for environmental protection purposes. Marine and freshwater shorelines are classified according to the character (substrate and form) of the upper intertidal (foreshore) or upper swash zone (Sergy, 2008). This is the area where oil from a spill usually becomes stranded and where treatment or cleanup activities take place.
