FATE OF STRANDED PELAGIC TAR ON A BERMUDA BEACH Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • The major process involved in the removal of stranded petroleum residues or 'tar lumps' from sandy high energy beaches is the adsorption of sand and shell particles to the residues effecting a density change. This results in transport off the beach, sinking, and sometimes burial of the tar in sublittoral sediments. 1979.
