The International Symposium and Workshop was prompted by the recognized need to communicate and exchange ideas and results on an international basis, which reflect the status of current methodology for making measurements of petroleum and petroleum products in the marine environment. Such needs arose as the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission and the World Meteorological Organization decided to establish an operational Pilot Project for Marine Pollution Monitoring which was initially to focus on petroleum hydrocarbons within the framework of the IGOSS (Integrated Global Ocean Station System) program. These proceedings contain the plenary lectures representing pertinent scientific, environmental, and regulatory aspects of petroleum hydrocarbon measurements, the summaries of the contributed papers, dealing with specific scientific developments and recommendations, and the recommendations of the topical discussion groups. Also included is a report of an international workshop which provides specific recommendations for the initiation of a coordinated Pilot Project for marine pollution (petroleum) monitoring.
