Abstract : The report describes the problem caused by the accumulation of diesel fuel in the ground adjacent to leaking storage tanks at the Transmitter Site, NAVCOM Station, Greece. The on-site survey account describes the data collection techniques employed and gives values of physical measurements made. Chemical and biological analyses were made later and the results of the analyses are used to develop a hypothesis regarding the extent and magnitude of the oil contamination. Recommendations are made to recover free oil from the area by pumping from collection pits and to restore the soil to an oil-free condition by bacterial seeding. (Author)
