    Contains 27 papers divided into four sections: laboratory toxicity and effectiveness testing; field effectiveness; fate and effects; and contingency planning and guidelines. Addresses when dispersants should be used; the results of the dispersant application; and the short-term; and long-term costs to the environment.
