内容 研究概要:During the Gulf war seven hundreds of oil wells were destroyed by the retreating armies of Iraq. In particular, the Burgan oil field suffered heavy damage. Over 50millions of crude oil spilled out flooding the desert and as a result, extensive contamination of desert soils occurred. Field investigations indicated that crude oil penetrated the desert soils under the newly formed oil lakes to a depth of 150 cm for the 5 years following the Gulf war. The calculated penetration of this oil into the soil over the next 100years is determined to be approximately 10 meters. At the Burgan area groundwater was not contaminated because the upper aquifer was at a depth of more than 100 meters.
