In January and March of 1985, in-place oil burning tests were conducted at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Oil and Hazardous Materials Simulated Environmental Test Tank. (OHMSETT) facility in Leonardo, New Jersey. In-place combustion of Prudhoe Bay and Amauligak crude oil slicks was attempted in varying ice coverages, oil conditions, and ambient conditions. An emulsion of Amauligak crude oil and water was also ignited three times and burned in 80% ice cover, removing nearly 50% of the emulsion.
