In recent decades, oil spill contamination has tended to occur more commonly in coastal and estuarial systems around the world, including the waters around the U.K (Manning et al., 2022). The management of such oil spillages, such as the 2010 Deepwater Horizon (DWH) disaster in the Gulf of Mexico, has been a major challenge in coastal and estuarial regions due to the highly sensitive nature of deltaic ecosystems and related public health. Many coastal and estuarial regions tend to have an abundance of clay minerals, and these cohesive particles - which can readily flocculate (e.g. Mehta et al., 2014; Zhang et al., 2018; Spencer et al., 2021; Krahl et al., 2022; Vowinckel et al., 2022) - play an important role in determining the transport of spilled oil contamination and its eventual fate, particularly given that suspended sediment and microbial activities are often prevalent and diverse in natural environments.
