Analysis and Survey of Marine Fuels and Pollution Samples
The types of oil spills generally encountered in the harbors of British Columbia have consisted of oil mixtures from the ships' bilges. These mixtures are generally bunker fuels, intermediate diesel fuels, and lubricating oils. Such spilled petroleum mixtures have been collected from the surface of the water or from beaches, log booms, and piers . Collected samples may range in volume from one litre to microlitre quantities.
