Abstract
With the development of petroleum and natural gas reserves in Alaska, the waters of northern Puget Sound and the Strait of Juan de Fuca have become major transportation routes through which Alaskan petroleums are delivered to Washington State. The increased tanker traffic undoubtedly will result in significant addition of petroleum hydrocarbons to the marine ecosystem. Once petroleum hydrocarbons are introduced into the marine environment, a combination of physical, chemical, and biological processes become operative in the destruction and removal of the oil. This study focuses on the spatial and seasonal distributions of suspended particulate matter and its adsorption characteristics relative to Alaskan crude oils. Seasonal distributions of total suspended solids were determined for the area north of Admiralty Inlet, east of Port Angeles, and south of the Fraser River between November 1976 and August 1977. Also, LANDSAT images were utilized to study surface trajectories of sediment plumes originating from the Fraser and Skagit Rivers. The composition and abundance of hydrocarbons associated with suspended matter was evaluated at five strategic locations in the northern Puget Sound region. Laboratory measurements were also performed under simulated natural conditions to investigate the short-term interaction between Prudhoe Bay crude oil and two locally-derived riverine sediments.
