  • IT has been well established that organic surface films exist in most of the world's major oceans1–9. They consist mainly of natural lipid material, with generally much smaller, though variable, amounts of petroleum hydrocarbons. Because the Mediterranean Sea is a restricted area the input of petroleum hydrocarbon is more noticeable than in most oceanic areas, and the level of surface pollution is probably increasing there because the major outflow occurs below the surface in the Straits of… CONTINUE READING
