Project Description

There is a need to examine broad ecosystem-level impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that may be indirect, synergistic, and may occur over a longer period than population-level impacts. The examination of ecosystem-level issues is well-suited to a modeling approach that is multi-disciplinary, collaborative, and makes maximum use of ongoing oil spill research.
