SURVEY OF EQUIPMENT AND TECHNIQUES TO IDENTIFY AND QUANTIFY DISCHARGED HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS
This report describes the results of a research effort to determine equipment and techniques that may be utilized by the Coast Guard to identify and quantify hazardous chemical discharges via field-oriented equipment incorporated in a mobile unit. The recommended techniques were the following: infrared, gas chromatography, wet chemistry (ion-selective electrodes, color test equipment, separatory equipment, hot plate, glassware), optical emission spectrography, and ultraviolet-visible spectrophotometry.
