Abstract
This report attempts to describe performance criteria for an ideal oil spill containment boom for emergency harbor service. The type of boom recommended is that which an emergency service, such as a fire department or a plant team could transport promptly to a spill incident within a harbor and deploy quickly to contain the spilled oil. The experience acquired by the Marine Division of the NYFD over the course of one year, both at active spill control operations and in test exercises, serves as the principal source of information for this report. Among the boom criteria developed are: recommended size and performance capabilities; storage and handling problems; optimum design characteristics. (Modified author abstract)
