Field surveys in the intertidal zone provided information on the effects of oil spills, cleaning treatments, and refinery effluents. More precise results for rocky shores, saltmarshes and lugworm beds were obtained by field experiments. The survey and experimental methods are briefly described, and results for the different biological communities summarised. Effects of oils and effluents vary considerably according to type and quantity of oil, cleaning treatment (if any), effluent characteristics, and hydrography and biology of the area affected. Related laboratory work concerns the toxicity ranking of oils, dispersants, effluents and effluent constituents; and behavioural responses of some organisms to sub-lethal doses of pollutants. Offshore surveys in Milford Haven, and the Celtic and North Seas, were initiated and are briefly referred to.
