The following report offers a comprehensive review of oil pollution incidents in and around New England waters. The first section of the report presents an analysis of all oil discharge data maintained by the U.S. Coast Guard for years 1973 through 1975. The data are analyzed categorically to reveal where most spills occur in New England waters, where the greatest quantities are spilled, what types of oil are most frequently spilled, what types are spilled in the greatest quantities (in gallons), what the most significant sources and causes of spills are, and within which size range (in gallons) most spills occur. The second section offers synopses of the more publicly recognized spills which have occurred within the last twenty-five years. the management of oil discharges and areas in which additional research is required are discussed in a concluding section. Work for this report was completed as of February 14, 1977.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 18-21).
