Abstract:

This report contains the results of an investigation of the potential toxic effects of the jet fuel JP-4 petroleum-based and shale-based on the aqueous environment. Composition of different JP-4 samples and their water extracts are compared. Techniques for the formation and analysis of water soluble extracts of JP-4 are described together with preliminary bioassay procedures using the aquatic organisms, Daphnia magna and Artemia salina. The first steps in the development of a mathematical model designed to describe and predict the effects of jet fuel spills are reported. Author
