Project Description

We propose to build upon the previous Coastal Waters Consortium (CWC) grants with this final two-year grant. CWC-II will address three themes identified in RFP VI of determining the physical distribution, dispersion and distribution of petroleum (theme 1), the chemical evolution and biological degradation and interactions with ecosystems (theme 2) and the environmental effects (theme 3) in the Gulf of Mexico within a broad context of improving fundamental understanding of the dynamics of such events and the associated environmental stresses. Our fundamental goal is to improve societyis ability to understand, respond to, and mitigate, the impacts of petroleum pollution and related stressors of coastal ecosystems in the northern Gulf of Mexico region.
