Project Description

The initial research of the Coastal Waters Consortium (CWC) demonstrated that what were thought to be stable oil biomarkers were not stable, that there were multiple oilings 100+ m into the marsh, and that the oiling varied by an order of magnitude within 20 m along the shoreline.
