Project Description

We request funds to maintain continuity of critical timesensitive biological sampling of offshore benthic seaweeds and macrocrustaceans related to the DWH oil spill in the northern Gulf of Mexico. These funds are to cover a gap in critical data acquisition during the late summer period spanning August 1 to September 30, 2011, until an RFP-II grant proposal can be submitted at a later date.
