Santa Barbara oil spill : short-term analysis of macroplankton and fish by Santa Barbara University of California( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deep and shallow macroplankton from the Santa Barbara Channel area of the 1969 oil spill and from the Santa Cruz Basin further offshore were compared with others from previous years to study oil damage. Spring and summer collections from nearshore bottom communities of fishes and large invertebrates around kelp beds near the blowout area were compared with collections made prior to the spill and another area. No noticeable fish kills followed the blowout. Most observed changes, apparently unrelated to the spill, corresponded with various climatic anomalies during March through August, 1969. After the blowout, the composition and mode of the Channel Island sport fishery changed with seasonal trends and probably not as a direct effect of the spill. Only the temporary disappearance of tiny mysid shrimps inhabiting the kelp canopy was a likely direct effect

Investigation of means for controlled self-destruction of pesticides by Aerojet-General Corporation( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 141 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Laboratory studies demonstrated the feasibility of controlled destruction of chlorinated pesticides such as DDT. The concept comprised (1) means to degrade DDT to a harmless form, and (2) methods to delay the reaction for given pest-control action. Chemical methods for degrading DDT were screened and reduction was selected as the most promising technique. Destruction of DDT, without forming DDE as a product, was demonstrated in laboratory studies by mildly acidic reduction with zinc powder. The principal product is bis(p-chlorophenyl) ethane, DDT with all three aliphatic chlorines removed; a material stated to be "void of the neurotoxic effects of DDT." Catalysis of the reaction resulted in complete destruction of DDT in 1 hr at 25°C and conversion to bis(chlorophenyl) ethane in 4-8 hrs. Catalyzed aluminum or iron reduction of DDT produced tetra(p-chlorophenyl)tetrachlorobutane, reportedly lipoid insoluble. A 90% destruction of DDT in soil in 4 days was demonstrated in a laboratory test with spray-applied integral, catalyzed zinc-DDT particles (5-micron). Reaction delay can be achieved with wax or silicone coatings on the reductant which are slowly dissolved or eroded, or possibly slow air oxidation of sulfur. Coatings were produced which stopped zinc-acid reaction. A test of combined reductant - delayed action technique was made using silanized, catalyzed zinc (5 microns)-DDT particles sprayed onto soil. Although faulty coating prevented the desired delay, 95% decomposition of DDT was obtained. Effective reductive degradation of the chlorinated pesticides dieldrin, endrin, aldrin, chlordane, toxaphene, Kelthane, methoxychlor, Perthane and lindane, and selected polychlorinated biphenyls was shown. Degradation of DDT in water was demonstrated, a 421 mg/l DDT suspension being reduced to 1 ppm after 1 hr reaction at 75°C

Environmental impact of highway deicing by Edison Water Quality Laboratory( Book )

3 editions published in 1971 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Deicing agents for removal of ice and snow from highways and streets are essential to wintertime road maintenance in most areas of the U.S. Due to the ever-increasing use of highway deicing materials, there has been growing concern as to environmental effects resulting from these practices. The state-of-the-art report critically reviews the available information on methods, equipment and materials used for snow and ice removal; chlorides found in rainfall and municipal sewage during the winter; salt runoff from streets and highways; deicing compounds found in surface streams, public water supplies, groundwater, farm ponds and lakes; special additives incorporated into deicing agents; vehicular corrosion and deterioration of highway structures and pavements; and effects on roadside soils, vegetation and trees. Highway deicing can cause injury and damage across a wide environmental spectrum. Recommendations describe future research, development and demonstration efforts necessary to assess and reduce the adverse impact of highway deicing
A feasibility analysis of incinerator systems for restoration of oil contaminated beaches by R. M Roberts( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The feasibility of employing a combustion process for restoring oil contaminated beaches was investigated. Beach access problems and the handling characteristics of shore materials limited the potential application to recreational (sand) sites. Thermodynamic arguments required that a system design be adopted in which the contaminated sand would undergo combustive processing in a confined arrangement. The design selected, from those analyzed, proved to be a three-effect combustor based on the rotary kiln principle. Provided that the sand to be cleaned is carefully enough collected to furnish a reasonable (>̲6%) oil content and is moved away from the surf and drained to an acceptable moisture level (<̲6%), basic processing costs would be highly attractive. In comparison with uncontaminated sand, the cleaned product exhibits only a slightly greyish hue
