Project Description

The proposed efforts address how wetlands and shoreline environments recover from the impacts of dispersant-mixed oil which washed ashore from the Deep Water Horizon (DWH) event. The overall economic recovery of the Alabama coastal region is strongly linked to the environmental quality of its shoreline areas. The overall goal of this proposal is to conduct field and mesocosm studies to demonstrate and understand the recovery patterns of coastal marshes and shorelines.
