Project Description

The PIs and their collaborators at several institutions are conducting coordinated efforts to address hypotheses about community change in coastal marshes resulting from presumed stressors linked to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and response efforts. The coastal marshes impacted by this spill, and the effects of the spill itself, are complex both spatially and temporally. A means to accurately locate and assess lingering areas of impact require more than coarse-scale tools such as publicly available maps (i.e., GeoPlatform).
