Forcearea and surface potentialarea isotherms of nine samples of organic surface active materials collected from various positions in the North Atlantic were studied on distilled water acidified to pH 2.0, and synthetic sea water substrates. Each of the six samples collected under approximately the same conditions were similar in surface activity and surface potential. Three samples, collected under different sea conditions or in areas where contamination was likely to occur, varied from this average.
