This manual documents the state-of-the-art response techniques as of early 1979. The manual has been divided into two basic parts: A field manual and supporting data. The field manual consists of a set of matrices that summarizes applicable techniques for various conditions. The on-scene coordinators will be able to use the matrices as a quick reference while they are responding to spills. The supporting data are a detailed summary of information on oil behavior and cleanup techniques. It was assumed that on-scene coordinators would have the opportunity to become knowledgeable enough about the material in this section so that only quick references to the field manual would be needed while responding to spills. It is also hoped that the on-scene coordinators will have had time to gather the information suggested (for example, maps delineating habitats and access roads) before the spill occurs. The ultimate success or failure of a response to an oil spill in cold regions will largely hinge on the on-scene coordinator's understanding of the information presented here and on his knowledge of the area in which the spill occurred.
