This project is designed to help elucidate the transformation and distribution of crude oil components and added dispersants in strategic areas of the Gulf of Mexico and along the projected plume trajectories. Most of the effort will be directed at coastal waters along the west Florida shelf and the Florida Keys, and particularly ecologically sensitive Florida coastal areas. The project will be largely based on laboratory analysis of water samples obtained from cruises of opportunity throughout the region of interest.
