We request funds to sample salt marshes more than one year after they were oiled by the Deepwater Horizon spill, as part of a pre- and post-exposure study. Our baseline sites were established in May 2010, we sampled again in September 2010, and have funds to return in May 2011. This proposal is for a September 2011 sampling trip.We are addressing scientific questions about community change resulting from presumed stressors arising from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and various response efforts.
