DETECTION, IDENTIFICATION, AND QUANTIFICATION TECHNIQUES FOR SPILLS OF HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS

The paper reports on a study that evaluated the first 400 chemicals listed in the Coast Guard's Chemical Hazards Response Information System handbook with respect to their detectability, identifiability, and quantifiability by 12 generalized remote and in situ sensing techniques and some of the pollution sensing instruments that are currently available or which could reasonably be expected to be available within the next few years. In addition, it identifies some of the key areas in the technology of water pollution sensing in which additional research and development efforts are needed.
