Description 
Summary

This project was a third stage of Supsa Terminal Monitoring program, started in 2001. For collection of investigated material were used 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. Concentration of Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons in sea sediments is determined by gas-chromatographic method after extraction with hexane.
