    Abstract

    This paper describes the use of a relational data base for the selection of priority hazardous chemicals to give a reasonable starting point and a logical sequence for conducting development programs involving chemical pollutants. Chemicals considered were those most likely to be encountered in or near a marine environment. The strategy was to gather available information on spill incidence, hazard factors, and need for clothing protection associated with each chemical. The information was stored in a computer with commercially available data base management software. Selection criteria were established for toxicity hazard, spill history, and requirement for an encapsulated suit. Chemicals for testing were sorted using these criteria.
