IDENTIFICATION, ESTIMATION AND MONITORING OF PETROLEUM IN MARINE WATERS BY LUMINESCENCE METHODS

Application of ultraviolet excitation spectrofluorimetry as a tool in the identification, estimation of concentration and monitoring of the marine environment are discussed. Fluorescence spectra are given for several crude oils and refined products. Low temperature analysis (about 77 degrees K) is recommended for greater sensitivity and selectivity.
