In the aftermath of an offshore oil spill accident, oil droplet aerosols may be generated from the surface oil slicks and transported by the wind in the marine atmospheric boundary layer. This airborne oil droplet transport process can induce serious threats to public health if it occurs over a coastal ocean near high-population urban areas. In this study, a hybrid large-eddy simulation model is developed and applied to simulate the transport of oil droplet aerosols in wind over progressive water waves. The simulation results show that the oil droplet transport is strongly dependent on the droplet size, and that the presence of long progressive waves can enhance the suspension of oil droplets in the wind due to strong wave-induced disturbance.
