The paper in this special Deepwater Horizon 10 year dedicated issue highlights the summary of collaborative work, findings, and recommendations from two workshops and over two years of working groups led by NOAA and involving experts from over 30 organizations including State, Federal, non-governmental organizations, and restoration practitioners.  

OR&R and Restoration Center jointly sponsored and led the workshops and working groups, which were facilitated by Dr. Nancy Kinner, co-Director of the Coastal Response Research Center (CRRC) at the University of New Hampshire. All workshop reports and presentations are available on the CRRC website

Scientists from several key organizations including the National Academies of Science Engineering and Medicine, Gulf Coast Ecosystem Restoration Council (RESTORE Council) and NOAA’s National Center for Environmental Information provided leadership on the workshops and working groups, with PhD candidates Kathryn Keating (LSU) and Missy Gloekly (UNH) as lead authors on the paper.
