This report represents a formal documentation of selected field study activities for one major spill incident which initially occurred offshore Louisiana on December 1, 1970 and lasted until April 16, 1971. The report is based on data and information obtained through three field surveys undertaken by EPA. The purpose of these field studies was to determine the areal extent of the spilled material, the fate of the spill, and the effect of the material on the biota. They were: The Caminada Bay - Barataria Bay physical, chemical and biological sampling conducted by EPA Region VI personnel assisted by the State of Louisiana; The offshore physical, chemical and biological sampling conducted by EPA regional personnel; Oceanographic and remote sensory survey; The joint physical, chemical and biological sampling.
