Column testing tanks for the oil behaviours in the water column. Left: Cedre tests column: a hexagonal 5 m height and 0.8 m wide featured with 4 large windows dedicated to the study of the behavior of pollutant in the water column. Right as an example of work carried out in Cedre’s tests column, picture oil droplets treated with dispersant rising up towards the surface, stretched vertically by the friction with the ambient water and loosing tiny oil droplets during their ascent (Stéphane et al. 2009)
