We found one piece of bituminous wood-coal which burned with a clear bright flame, and emitted a pleasant odour." * At the present date the tidal rise on these parts of the Spitzbergen coast is said to be only eight feet, but a line of drift-timber at more than twice that height above the sea is mentioned by Lord Mulgrave.

It comprises: combining a sucrose-containing substrate with effective amounts of a levansucrase enzyme preparation to form levan and glucose; purifying the levan by at least one of the following purification methods: ultrafiltration, diafiltration, hyperfiltration, reverse osmosis, liquid--liquid partition, solvent extraction, chromatography, and precipitation; hydrolyzing the levan to form fructose substantially free of glucose and sucrose; and recovering the fructose by at least one of the following recovery methods: hyperfiltration, reverse osmosis, evaporation, drying, crystallization, and chromatography.
