New Jersey: Rutgers University Press, 1994. Hardcover. In January 1990, the New York Harbor suffered a major oil spill when an underwater pipe at an Exxon refinery leaked into the Arthur Kill.
Because this industrial activity posed such an imposing threat to the fragile ecosystem, biologists had been monitoring the region's water, soil, vegetation, and wildlife for some time before the oil spill. Thus, we have before -and-after data about the habitat the only oil spill anywhere for which this is true.
