Equipment Used
Sample and map distribution of spilled 1989
Exxon Valdez oil and 1964 earthquake released California tar.  Study fate
of hydrocarbon residues resulting from significant spills in 1964 and 1989.
Collected 23 samples from shorelines of islands at 9 sites.  Collected
fjord floor sediment samples at 7 deep-water, previously occuppied sites along
the spill trajectory using a grab sampler from the NOAA ship Rainier. NOAA's 
Boston Whaler to reach shore to sample sites of man's influence and habitation; 
Smith-McIntyre grab sampler to collect deep samples from fjord floor.
