A model test development study was conducted of a floating weir oil recovery system for rapid recovery of oil spilled on the high seas. The oil recovery system consists of two floating weirs connected by a flexible basin material. The operation of the system is based on the fact that oil thickens in front of a physical barrier moving relative to the water surface. Volume 1 contains a summary of model test results and prototype performance projections.
