This project is concerned with the efforts to investigate the physical processes that affect transport, dispersion, dilution, distribution, and fate of oil-derived substances with an important objective of understanding the transport and fate of contaminants associated with the Deepwater Horizon incident. The overarching goal of the proposed research is to identify and determine the kinematic and dynamic transport processes that govern the distribution, dispersion, dilution, and fate of oil-derived substances in Alabama coastal waters.
