TEST TO DETERMINE THE COMBINED EFFECTS OF WAVES AND CURRENTS ON BARRIER MOTIONS AND OIL RETENTION EFFICIENCY IN ROUGH WATER. POINT CONCEPTION, CALIFORNIA
The project proposes to conduct full scale testing of the high seas oil containment barrier, in order to furnish verfication 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. There are no known long term adverse effects as a result of the test program. (Author)
