HAS THE AMOUNT OF TAR ON THE OPEN OCEAN CHANGED IN THE PAST DECADE Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Quantitative surveys of beach tar on Bermuda during 1978-1979 are compared with similar surveys in 1971-1972. A 15% increase in the mean, while not significantly different from previously observed levels, is significantly higher than the reported 27% decrease due to improvements in tanker operations. 1980.
