Project Description

There is considerable public apprehension concerning the possibility of buried and sunken Macondo oil remaining from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that occurred during the summer of 2010. The public apprehension is rooted in the fear of the unknown, more specifically, how oil that was unaccounted for can impact the Gulf ecosystem and important commercial and recreational marine fisheries.
