    Abstract

    The impact of hydrocarbon discharges on the intertidal and subtidal meiobenthos of the North Sea is examined primarily by a consideration of 2 field investigations: 1) the effects of an oil refinery discharge on intertidal meiofauna in the Firth of Forth; and 2) the impact of oil platform discharges on the surrounding meiobenthos. Hydrocarbon discharges into the North Sea are unlikely to be causing extensive damage to meiofaunal communities. -from Authors
