STUDY OF A MARINE SANITATION SYSTEM OPERATING ON SALINE WATER

The research studies the effectiveness of a biological sewage treatment system using either fresh water or salt water for flush water. The study began during the spring semester of the 1973 year while the ship was being used as a dormitory and continued during the 1973 summer cruise. The system was characterized by measuring temperature, BOD5, salinity, residual chlorine, pH, phosphate, nitrate, total suspended matter, and the coliform bacteria.
