Abstract
On December 15-17, 1969, a Joint Conference on Prevention and Control of Oil Spills was held under the cosponsorship of the American Petroleum Institute and the Federal Water Pollution Control Administration. The objectives of the conference were to delineate the overall dimensions of the oil spills problem, explore the present state of the art of prevention and control of oil spills, and review the relevant research and development efforts of government and private industry, both here and abroad. The topics discussed include spill prevention, boom design, mechanical removal, chemical additives, analysis and sampling, monitoring, beach cleanup, fate of spills, ecological effects, and oil-spill information retrieval and dissemination.
