The Deep-C Consortium proposes a long-term, interdisciplinary study of deep-sea-to-coast connectivity in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico. The study will investigate the environmental consequences of petroleum hydrocarbon release in the deep Gulf on living marine resources and ecosystem health. Deep-C will examine the geomorphologic, hydrologic, and biogeochemical settings that influence the distribution and fate of the oil and dispersants released during the Deepwater Horizon (DwH) accident, and use the resulting data for model studies that support improved responses to possible future incidents.
