BEHAVIOR OF OIL UNDER CANADIAN CLIMATIC CONDITIONS--1. OIL ON WATER UNDER ICE-FORMING CONDITIONS

Properties of the oil were investigated by gas chromatography and the following forms of spectroscopy: neutron activation (gamma-ray), infrared, ultraviolet, visible and fluorescence. The weathering of the oil and its influence on its environment were correlated with the weather parameters. An estimated 50% of the oil had evaporated before the oil was covered with snow, as determined by gas chromatographic analysis and supported by neutron activation analysis. A biological assessment was conducted during the following summer and results are presented in graphical and tabular form.
