Project Description

The overarching objective of C-IMAGE II is: to advance understanding of the processes and mechanisms involved in marine blowouts and their environmental consequences. Our consortium focuses both on extension of work started under the initial C-IMAGE project, along with three new initiatives: (a) field work at the IXTOC-I blowout site, (b) establishment of a marine exposure facility for fishes, and (c) a Gulf-wide assessment of fish and sediment contamination to better understand and predict oil fate and impacts of DWH and other spills.
