IDENTIFICATION OF SHIPS RESPONSIBLE FOR OIL RELEASES BY MEANS OF OIL RESIDUE TAGGING

Experiments showed that metal particles with a specific weight of about 8 and a size up to 60 microns could be used to tag oil cargoes. By combining particles from two or more different alloys, a great number of different tagging combinations are possible. Some disadvantages with the method are also reviewed. Organization of the method, developed in Sweden for use in the Baltic Sea, is discussed in terms of operation on a national and international level. Future development is outlined. Order from NSFI as No. 17265.
