Contents Notes
"At the request of the US EPA Oil Program Center, ERD is developing an oil spill model that focuses on fate and transport of oil components under various response scenarios. Since crude oils and petroleum products are composed of many chemicals that have varying physical properties, data are required to characterize these fluids for use in models. The data and regressions presented in this report illustrate the interaction between oils and dispersants under a variety of environmental conditions. EPA expects these data to be useful both for modeling and to provide a resource for the oil spill response community as a whole."--P. iii - Foreward.
