This paper revisits the mathematical model of an oilslick presented in . Through various simplifying assumptions the model is one for which the equations may be solved exactly using a series solution approach. Steady solutions are found. The model may be used as a predictive tool to help determine when deploying a boom may be successful in limiting the spread of oil after a spill.
