Project Description

The scale of the Deepwater Horizon accident was unprecedented for an oil spill and highlighted a critical need to understand the important processes affecting fate and transport of petroleum fluids over the wide range of scales from the wellhead to the beach in the Gulf of Mexico and to assess the benefits of potential spill response activities. Evaluating the mechanisms controlling fate and transport of oil in the Gulf of Mexico through laboratory, field, and numerical experiments is the focus of this consortium proposal.
