This report provides the results of a study to assess the applicability of ice boom technology to aid or extend oil spill cleanup capabilities in broken ice. The technology has been developed and used successfully at several locations to control the ice. For oil spill cleanup in broken ice, booms have the potential in a number of ways, such as: (a) preventing ice ingress into the spill area, thereby providing an ice-free area where conventional oil spill equipment can operate; and, (b) providing a means to assist in separating the oil from the ice.
