By J. P. Bruce (auth.), B. K. Afghan, D. Mackay, H. E. Braun, A. S. Y. Chau, J. Lawrence, D. R. S. Lean, O. Meresz, J. R. W. Miles, R. C. Pierce, G. A. V. Rees, R. E. White, D. M. Whittle, D. T. Williams (eds.)

This quantity includes papers chosen from these provided on the foreign Symposium at the research of Hydrocarbons and Halogenated Hydrocarbons within the Aquatic setting, may well 23-25, 1978. The Symposium was once equipped by means of the nationwide Water learn Institute of atmosphere Canada and the Institute for Environmental stories of the college of Toronto. the aim of the Symposium and of this quantity used to be to assemble info at the analyses, behaviour and results of hydro­ carbons and halogenated hydrocarbons at the aquatic setting. This category of contaminants offers many tricky analytical seasoned­ blems, and to a wide volume our skill to spot environmental difficulties and examine their severity, will depend on the supply of proved analytical ideas. by means of exposing staff during this box to the strategies and result of others we are hoping that development should be made in the direction of fixing the various difficulties as a result of those components. The papers during this quantity are divided into 5 different types: plenary consultation addresses given through J.P. Bruce and O. Hutzinger, eleven papers describing quantitative analytical effects, 12 papers on analytical equipment, nine papers on occurrence, tracking and pathways; and eventually, thirteen papers on ingesting water, health and wellbeing and organic results. We have been lucky in having the aid of the various firms and members indexed after this preface. particularly we thank B.F. Scott and R. Knechtel for his or her assist in organizing the Symposium, S. Paterson, C. Straka, B. Reuber, A. Bobra, R. Wan, S. Austin, G.E.

We live in a time where science, at least part of it, has to be applied to the needs and problems of society. Environmental analytical chemistry is ideally suited to make contributions in this area and analytical chemistry is for these and other reasons more important now than ever before.

Water column sampling stations in the Southern California Bight in 1977. 4'N. , in press), contains active submarine oil seeps, and supports a high density of both recreational and commercial shipping, hydrocarbon levels in the water, both biogenic and anthropogenic, would be expected to be higher than in the majority of oceanic areas. On this basis we conclude that a value of I ~g/l or higher of total hydrocarbons in surface marine waters may generally be considered as too high, and that many of the earlier values reported in the literature, cited above, likely represent some degree of sample contamination.
