A multitude of analyses using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), infrared, and fluorescence spectroscopy to identify and measure organic pollutants in water are discussed under eleven project categories. In most cases these analyses have helped to solve, or at least understand more clearly, the related pollution incident and in some cases provided for enforcement of regulatory legislation. Projects included indentification of pesticides and PCB's (polychlorinated biphenyls) from natural waters, organics from industrial wastewaters and landfill runoffs, organics from paper mill wastewaters and foam, and analyses of oils from oil spills and suspect sources.
