After oil spills by allowing natural weathering to degrade the oil as a possible choice under certain situations

After oil spills by allowing natural weathering to degrade the oil as a possible choice under certain situations. Researchers had frequently documented that the adding of the nutrients in the form of fertilizer to native microorganisms has demonstrated to be effective in improving the biodegradation and is environmentally safe at the same time.
It has furthermore has been observed, that microbes with the ability to degrade oil are existing in almost all coastal environments and that the environmental parameters besides nutrients will disturb the actual degradation rates. Thus the applications of the nutrients are still to some degree affected by temperature, water runoff, substrate, and other environmental limitations that are neither completely understood nor easily measured.
