The first part of this study reviews world-wide research on cold climate oil spills on land to identify some of the terrestrial environmental factors in cold regions affected by oil spills and some of the techniques for measuring impacts and terrestrial systems, primarily soils. The second part of the study reviews cold climate research on oil spills into fresh water. The final part of the report, surveys Alaskan hydrocarbon spills in the period January 1974 through May 1976. These studies will be of interest to all those concerned with cold climate oil spills on land and into fresh water.
