Objectives Objectives not supplied
Abstract Summary : Objective : Using well-known fuel oils and licensed dispersants compare and contrast through a series of sea trials, in suitable weather conditions, the effectiveness of such dispersant treatments and compare the results with laboratory derived information. Key Customer Purpose : In collaboration with other organisations involved with developing best practice for the minimisation of the environmental impact of oils through the use of dispersants provide a protocol for their future use in UK waters.
