OCEAN OUT FALL DISPERSION

AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY MAY PROVIDE A METHOD OF ANALYZING DISPERSION OF WASTES THAT ARE DISCHARGED INTO THE OCEAN. A PROCEDURE FOR DETERMINING WASTE CONCENTRATIONS FROM AERIAL PHOTOGRAPHY IS DESCRIBED. THIS TECHNIQUE MAY YIELD MORE COMPREHENSIVE RESULTS THAN CONVENTIONAL BOAT SAMPLING IN DISPERSION STUDIES. DISCREPANCIES BETWEEN BOAT CONCENTRATIONS AND PHOTO CONCENTRATIONS APPEAR TO BE DUE PRIMARILY TO THE CHANGING AND SHIFTING OF THE WASTE IN THIS DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT. THE PHOTOGRAPHIC TECHNIQUE IS A METHOD OF STUDY THAT MAY PROVIDE INFORMATION ON DIFFUSION WHICH HAS BEEN IMPOSSIBLE TO MEASURE BY CONVENTIONAL SAMPLING METHODS. /AUTHOR/
