S.O.S.: Stop Oil Spills- Results of an LC50 Study on Artemia Salina
Region:Frontenac, Lennox & Addington
City:Kingston, ON
School:King's Town School
Abstract:This project studied the effectiveness and safety of potential clean-up agents in an oil spill. A series of oil spills were simulated to study the effects the agents and oil would have on a biological model using Artemia Salina (Brine Shrimp). While polymer and hair were effective and well tolerated by Artemia, soap was very toxic and most Artemia died when this agent was used.
