The Fate and Persistence of Stranded Crude Oil: A Nine-year Overview from the BIOS Project, Baffin Island, NWT, Canada

From May 1980 to August 1983, the Baffin Island Oil Spill (BIOS) Project sponsored field research in Cape Hatt in the Canadian Arctic. It addressed alternative responses to a spilled oil slick threatening or contaminating remote areas near shore. A variety of experimental spills were monitored to assess and compare quantitatively the fate and effects of chemically dispersed crude oil and a beached crude oil slick, as well as the effectiveness of shoreline cleanup techniques. - OUT OF STOCK
