Abstract

The objectives of this program conducted over a four year period were to determine the ecological effects, chemical fate and microbial responses of marsh systems to crude oil spills. To conduct these studies in a manner which maximized control, large enclosures were constructed in a natural mesohaline marsh (Figure 1). Both fresh South Louisiana crude and artificially aged South Louisiana crude were studied.
