FULL SCALE TESTING OF HIGH SEAS OIL CONTAINMENT BARRIER, IN ORDER TO FURNISH VERIFICATION OF THE PROTOTYPE DESIGN

Full scale testing is proposed for a high seas oil containment barrier in order to furnish verification of the prototype design. This test will determine the combined effects of waves and currents on barrier motions and oil retention efficiency in rough water in a sea area close to the states of Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, and Florida. There are no known long term adverse effects as a result of this test program.
