The purpose of this manual is to provide the On-Scene Coordinator (OSC) with a systematic methodology consistent with national policy that can be used to assess the case-by-case acceptability of oil spill treatment using chemicals, and to determine appropriate application procedures. It contains guidelines for evaluating spill safety, determination of relevant spill characteristics, prediction of treated and non-treated spill movement, and criteria for comparison of probable impacts with and without treatment. Dispersion of oil at sea, dispersion on the shoreline, and the use of surface collecting agents are considered. The manual additionally describes general chemical agent application procedures and dosage regulation.
