This report documents the progress during FY75 in the fabrication and the testing of an automatic oil pollution monitoring system. In the system developed, a Direct Difference method of Total Organic Carbon determination was utilized to ascertain oil concentrations. Using this monitor, it was possible to specify the concentration of any oil, independent of type, in an oil separator effluent sample. In the final phases of the study, preliminary investigations on prototype improvements were initiated and oil concentrations of bilge water samples were determined
