This report provides a summary of NBS Oil Shale activities covering the period 1975 to 1979. At the start of this period a Workshop on Standard Reference Materials (SRM's) needed for Oil Shale Processing was held at NBS and served to provide the priority guidance for the future of this program. A summary of the recommendations of that Workshop, the manuscripts presented during the Workshop, and the list of attendees is included in this report. The status of the Oil Shale Research at NBS is also presented consisting of developmental work on the feasibility of producing an Oil Shale and a Shale Oil Standard Reference Materials characterized for both trace inorganic and trace organic constituents. Additionally, information is given dealing with the development of measurement methods appropriate for Oil Shale and Shale Oil trace inorganic and trace organic analysis. Several papers are also included giving additional details on these matters. Other NBS Standard Reference Materials, which may be appropriate for the use by the Oil Shale community, are described briefly within this document. Finally, recommendations for future Oil Shale projects dealing with the development of measurement methods and Standard Reference Materials at NBS are presented.
