Project Description

This proposal consists of four Deepwater Horizon oil spill related tasks. The DWH oil spill is a major oceanographic and environmental event that poses perhaps the greatest environmental threat the United States has ever encountered.
It is imperative that we understand the impacts of the spill as close to real time as possible so variance due to other factors can be constrained.
