ECONOMICS OF MARINE POLLUTION CONTROL
Petroleum transportation on the seas has alarmed the world's population to the possibility of despoiling the oceans beyond the tolerance limits for food chain survival. New solutions to waste disposal are necessary. The intentional discharge of oily wastes by tankers must be stopped. Five methods of doing this are examined and the economic cost for each system is presented.
