Submitted : Fall 2012

Oil spills are one of the biggest threats to our ecosystem. Unfortunately human mistakes are bound to happen; however the more we know about these disasters can help us prevent major damage to our oceans with any possible future events. Using algebra and differential equations we can learn how quickly an oil slick grows and to what extent.
