Description: The Prince William Sound Regional Citizens’ Advisory Council (PWSRCAC) has recently discovered that the ANS crude oil used in most of the 2002 Dispersant Effectiveness Tests in Cold Water conducted at Ohmsett was heated far above ambient water temperature (32 degrees F) immediately before being dispersed with Corexit 9527 and 9500. This heating (as high as 115 degrees F) was not identified in the Final Report but was only recently discovered in handwritten daily test logs.
