Description 
Summary

River Supsa and the sea area adjacent to the river delta are located in the limits of the zone subjected to the impact from oil pipeline and oil terminal. This project was a second stage of Supsa Terminal Monitoring program, started in 2001. The field works were carried out 10-14 June, 2006. For collection of investigated material were used the vessel LAMNALKO CROSSBILL and the cutter “Asmati”, appurtenant of Supsa oil terminal. Objectives of cruise were the collection and analyze of water and sediment samples from r. Supsa, offshore zone of Oil Terminal and river delta, with purpose the evaluation of Terminal impact in marine environment. The pH of water column is measured on the board of ship, by portable water analyser.
