Abstract:

Development work performed by other governmental agencies does not evaluate and recommend equipment for operation use in oil spills. An urgent current need exists within the Navy for a systematic evaluation of available oil spill recovery components individually and in combination as an oil recovery system for Naval Harbors. This report and a companion narrated 16 mm film summarize results of the initial project under a continuing NAVFAC program to fill this Navy need. The main emphasis of this program currently underway at NCEL is a comparative evaluation of oil spill containment booms, skimmers, and related equipment resulting in the recommendation of a harbor oil spill recovery system for Navy use.
