Project Description

On April 22, 2010, two days after exploding and leaving eleven workers dead, the BP-leased Deepwater Horizon drilling rig sank into the Gulf of Mexico. Coastal communities experienced significant social and economic upheaval. Despite the widespread relief that met the news in mid-July that the well was capped, uncertainty about the long-term ecological and economic consequences of the disaster remains high.
