Project Description

Understanding the full ecological consequences of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) event, determining best long-term mitigation strategies, and preparing for the next spill, requires a systems-level approach to the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem. Our goal is to develop and integrate empirically validated models of oil plume fate and ecotoxicology to more accurately predict contaminant distribution, composition and ecosystem impacts from the DWH and any future oil-well blowouts.
