Project Description

We will integrate 3 lines of evidence derived from parasitology (PI Bullard), microbiology (Co-PI Arias), and toxicology (Co-PI Unger) towards continued tracking of the physical fate (GRI Themes I & II) and environmental effects (GRI Theme III) of DHOS oil within a heavily-oiled Gulf of Mexico salt marsh: Barataria Bay (29.3617N; 89.8987W), 170 km NW of the Deepwater Horizon wellhead.
