Abstract To investigate the transport and incorporation of water-borne oil to sediments, no. 2 fuel oil was added as a dispersion in semiweekly doses to three controlled estuarine ecosystems. Samples of suspended particulate matter and sediments were analyzed by gas chromatography for saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons. Biodegradation and other processes effected the removal of most of the hydrocarbons soon after the additions ended, but a residue of 10-20% in the form of branched alkanes, cycloalkanes, and aromatics in an unresolved complex mixture persisted more than 1 year later.
