Summary
Abstract: To measure how quickly soils respond to oil spills, JP5 jet fuel was spilled onto contained soil cores at Scott Base. 105 PVC soil cores (10 cm x 30 cm deep) capped at the bottom sitting in plastic containers were embedded in soil near Scott Base level with the ground surface and filled with soil from disturbed areas around Scott Base. The tubes were left over winter. The following summer 60 ml of ... View entire text
