Field trials were conducted on commercial oil dispersants using the Warren Springs type of testing apparatus. These field trials were undertaken to gain a better appreciation of the effectiveness of dispersants in both warm and cold water. The results of tests conducted on 5 products indicate that the new concentrates represent a considerable improvement over the more conventional oil dispersants with the implication of improved application logistics. Data obtained from the work done in colder weather suggest that oil dispersant performance deteriorates somewhat under colder conditions.
