Description 
Summary

The Rv. 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. Objectives of cruise were the collection and analyze of water and sediment samples from Rv. Supsa, offshore zone of Oil Terminal and river delta, with purpose of the evaluation of Terminal impact on marine environment. The concentration of Fe, Mn, Cu, Zn, Cd, Pd, Cr, Ni in sea sediments is determined by atomic absorption method, and As and Se are determined by spectrophotometer method.
