Ocean waves can generally increase the initial dilution of produced water and subsequently affect the ecological risk. To study the wave effects on ecological risk, a probabilistic based buoyant jet dispersion model has been in tegrated with risk analysis software. @ RISK, to assess ecological risk for a case corresponding to published parameters for the White Rose field, off west coast of Canada. The ecological risks on sheepshead minnows were evaluated by conducting Monte Carlo simulation for four different discharge scenarios. The Hazard Quotients (HQs) method was used to characterize the risk. Contour plots of probability distributions of (HQs) from those four discharge scenarios were compared and discussed. The wave effects were identified by comparison of the wave and no wave simulations.
