Summary :

1.1 This test method covers the measurement of the deposition of an aerially applied dispersant on the surface of the ground or water. The test method of obtaining these measurements is described, and the analysis of the results, in terms of dispersant use, is considered. There are a number of techniques that have been developed, and this test method outlines their application. These measurements can be used to confirm or verify the specifications of a given equipment set, its proper functioning, and use.

1.2 This test method is applicable to systems used with helicopters or airplanes.

1.3 This test method is one of four related to dispersant application systems. Guide F 1413 covers design, Practice F 1460 covers calibration, Test Method F 1738 covers deposition, and Guide F 1737 covers the use of the systems. Familiarity with all four standards is recommended.

1.4 There are some exposure and occupational health concerns regarding the methods described. These are not discussed in this test method since they are a function of dispersant formulation. Anyone undertaking such experiments should consult the occupational health experts of the dispersant manufacturer regarding the precautions to be used.

1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard.

1.6 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
