Abstract
A review of hydrocarbons in the marine environment is presented with the goal of providing a background for evaluating methods for the measurement of petroleum pollution in marine organisms and sediments. Comparisons are made of extraction, isolation and measurement procedures applied to hard shell clams (Mercenaria mercenaria) and near shore and estuarine sediments. Gas chromatographic, gas chromatographic-mass spectrometric, and U.V.-fluorescence techniques were used to analyze the hydrocarbons isolated by these procedures.
