Oil that entered the environment from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill site represents a threat to coastal and pelagic ecosystems of the Gulf of Mexico region. Repeated and frequent mapping of surface and subsurface oil plumes over this large region was required for monitoring, forecasting and mitigation efforts. This two-year Collaborative Project organized experts from the region to conduct research under Category 1, i.e. to determine the distribution and extent of oil and dispersants.
