Oil, Dispersants, and Ecosystem Health
Presented by Sara Edge and Clay Cook
About the Lecture
Characterizing threats to ecosystem health from oil spills and dispersant use can be challenging, particularly in areas with diverse ecosystems, such as the Gulf of Mexico. Dr. Sara Edge will discuss the consequences of both dispersed and undispersed oil and how a better understanding of their modes of action will lead to more effective decision making.
