Oil pollution was studied on sea water and sediments of Istanbul Strait following the Nassia tanker accident. The oil amount in the sea water and sediments was determined by UVF spectrophotometry. GC analysis was made on the sea water and on the aliphatic fractions of sediments. Oil amount found gradually decreased in sea water whereas increased in sediments after the accident.
