AMOCO CADIZ: PRELIMINARY OBSERVATIONS OF THE OIL SPILL IMPACT ON THE MARINE ENVIRONMENT

AMOCO CADIZ: PREMIERES OBSERVATIONS DES CONSEQUENCES A COURT TERME DE LA POLLUTION PAR HYDROCARDURES SUR L'ENVIRONNEMENT MARIN

Papers presented deal with Mar. 1978 oil spill resulting when the super-tanker Amoco Cadiz grounded off the coast of Brittany. Preliminary results obtained by various scientific teams working in the field to assess the impact of the oil spill on the hydrology, the coastal processes, and the flora and fauna of this area are reviewed. Also investigated were the hydrocarbon concentrations, the weathering effect of oil, and the behaviour and toxicity of oil in marine organisms.
