CONSIDERATIONS FOR FIELD USE OF DISPERSANTS

A rationale is presented for the correlation of laboratory generated dispersant data to the spill situation in the field. Discussion and tabular presentation of data supports the rationale, which incorporates application factors for dispersant toxicity and effectiveness data to initial concentrations of oil and dispersants in the water column after dispersant application in the field. The EPA's current research projects on oil spill dispersants are summarized.
