fate of spilled oil (1989 & 1964)
4 deep water stations sampled; 17 beaches explored and 9 tar samples brought 
(From 9/16/94 USGS bulletin)  The RAINIER piggy-back cruise to collect
hydrocarbon samples in Prince William Sound, with Paul Carlson and Keith
Kvenvolden aboard, was so successful that they kicked us off 6 days early.
NOAA was extremely cooperative, placing a Boston Whaler and driver at our
disposal every day.  This allowed us to explore 17 beaches and we returned
with 9 tar samples.  We also used the RAINIER one day to re-occupy four deep
water (285-747m) fjord stations sampled from the FARNELLA (5/89) within the
trajectory of the 1989 EXXON VALDEZ spill. Coupled with spectacularly clear
weather, we had a great trip.- Paul Carlson
