Abstract

The purpose of this research was to evaluate the current state of technology of prevention and control of major oil spillage on water, the restoration of the shore face and waterfowl, and the effects of oil pollution and defensive measures on aquatic life. The objective was to assist in establishing procedures and facilities for standardized control and cleanup based on current technology and experience, and areas where additional research and development could result in improved capability for prevention, control, and restoration. Detailed research and development recommendations for prevention, control, and restoration are made. A plan of action which improves the capability for preventing and combating oil spillage and for minimizing its consequences is proposed.
