During April 1978 and July 1980, a total of 5257 drift cards were released along portions of two pipelines proposed to carry crude oil across Washington State. The thin floatable plastic cards, having a specific gravity close to most crude oils, drift predominantly under the influence of local currents and winds until beached. Their reported recovery assists in determining possible trajectories and shoreline impact areas of potential surface and near surface oil spills.
