An Oil Spill Sampling Strategy
Smith, W.
1979 WHOI-R-79-013
A strategy for estimating the effect of an oil spill from a sample survey in the context of formal sampling theory is outlined in this paper. The investigator found that the conclusions that can be drawn from an oil spill survey are necessarily weaker than those that can be drawn from a carefully designed experiment. Although the survey can evaluate the differences in the properties of the control and affected areas selected, unlike a carefully designed experiment, survey data alone cannot assign a direct or indirect causal relationship between the oil spill and differences observed in the survey. One must turn to scientific results from controlled experiments of the effects of oil to show the probable relationship between the impact of oil on the survey area and the results of the survey analysis. The investigator concludes his analysis by stating that both the scientific evidence of the effect of oil in the environment and the survey results for a particular oil spill are necessary components in establishing the impact of an oil spill.
