How would anyone start to dig through all the scientific information gathered from the Gulf of Mexico after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill?
Learn how to use these two map-based NOAA tools to start exploring!
NOAA has created several tools and resources for mapping, tracking, and dealing with shipwrecks and abandoned vessels.
These efforts won't solve the whole issue, but they are an important step along the way.
We have scheduled Science of Oil Spills (SOS) classes for the week of March 28, 2016 in Mobile, Alabama, and the week of May 16, 2016 in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
These trainings help oil spill responders increase their understanding of oil spill science when analyzing spills and making risk-based decisions.
A new study led by NOAA outlines a trend of reproductive failure and death in Gulf bottlenose dolphins over nearly five years of monitoring after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Of the 10 Barataria Bay dolphins confirmed to be pregnant during a 2011 health assessment, only two successfully gave birth to calves that have survived.
The programs of the CAMEO software suite are designed to help prepare for and respond to chemical emergencies.
Environmental Sensitivity Index (ESI) maps provide a concise summary of coastal resources at risk if an oil spill occurs nearby.
ERMA is an online mapping tool integrating static and real-time data in a centralized, easy-to-use format for environmental responders and decision makers.
ADIOS is an oil spill response tool that models how different types of oil weather in the marine environment.
GNOME is a software modeling tool used to predict the possible route pollutants might follow on the water's surface.
The Chemical Reactivity Worksheet is a software program that predicts chemical reactivity for thousands of common hazardous chemicals.
The CAFE database is a software program that helps responders assess environmental impacts to biological species from chemical or oil spills into aquatic environments.
