Contents Notes
"A series of ocean studies was conducted in 1978 and 1979 to develop quantitative data on the effectiveness of dispersants at sea and on the behavior of dispersant-treated oil. Test spills were made in the outer New York Bight some 80 km southeast of New York Harbor. Ambient conditions were consistent for both years of testing, but other factors such as spill volume, time of dispersant application, and dispersant dose were varied. Oils used were Murban and La Rosa crude. Reasonably effective treatment was achieved when dispersant was sprayed 30 min or less after the oil was spilled. Little oil was found in the subsurface water after spraying dispersant on oil that had been on the sea surface for 2 hr."
