Contamination of Florida sandy beaches by crude oil has severe environmental and economic consequences, i.e. buried oil releases toxic substances killing beach organisms and tourism alone has an economic impact of $57 billion. This proposal addresses the fate of Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil and dispersants washed up on Florida sandy beaches. It is a collaboration between scientists at FSU and Eckerd College.
