A novel mathematical model is used for investigating the effect of oil pollutions on the characteristics of Langmuir circulations and the streams of sensitive and latent heat from a basin into the atmosphere. Calculations have been performed for a wide range of wind velocities over the basin and for the values of Dalton's number which depends on the surface pollution. A range of parameters in which the Langmuir circulations disappear has been found. Estimates have been made of the temperature differences between the water surface and the air, as well as between the water surface and the bottom, as functions of wind velocity and Dalton's number.
