The fate, distribution and composition of oil and oil-dispersant mixtures were studied in a series of five, lined, inground ponds containing sandy gravel sediment and mesotrophic water. Normal Wells crude oil and Corexit 9527 were added at nominal concentrations of 100 and 20 ppm, respectively, to two of the ponds, and the crude oil alone was added at 100 ppm to a third pond. The water surface, water column, the sediment, pond liner and attached biota were systemically sampled for a year. While… CONTINUE READING
