Abstract

By analyzing samples of water of the Egyptian ports, an indication of a daily oil flow has been proved to be added from different sources like ships, motor boats, barges, reception facilities, shipyards and run off from keys and terminals. The physical and chemical properties of oil develop with time when exposed to weather elements and sea actions so that the new developed characteristics of oil residuals could be completely different from the original oil. The rate of progress of the physical and chemical changes depends upon oil type and weather conditions. One of the important problems is to estimate
