TRACING OIL AS A POLLUTANT IN WATER

The paper describes how samples of spilled oil are separated from the water and then subjected to a number of tests to determine the oil's unique characteristics. These "fingerprints" are matched to data on sources to pinpoint the origin of the spill. Brief case histories are discussed and illustrated with tables.
