Abstract:

A number of notions concerning the behavior of creosote in marine environments are examined. Among these are mechanical loss, leaching, threshold concentration, and bioenvironment. Factors involved in predicting service life are presented and the conclusion is drawn that creosote protects wood for long periods of time in cold-water harbors but not in warm-water harbors having a high population of Limnoria tripunctata.
