Project Description

The University of Southern Mississippi proposes the CONsortium for oil spill exposure pathways in COastal River- Dominated Ecosystems (CONCORDE) to expressly address how complex fine-scale structure and processes in coastal waters dominated by pulsed-river plumes control the exposure, impacts, and ecosystem recovery from offshore spills like the Deepwater Horizon release of 2010. CONCORDE will characterize complex circulation and its relevance for toxin exposure movement using a combination of remotely-sensed and field-collected oceanographic data around three major campaigns.
