Responding to oil spills: Coastal wetland habitats

Thursday, October 26, 2017
9:00a CT – 4:00p CT (registration starts at 8:30a CT)
Mississippi State University Coastal Research and Extension Center
1815 Popps Ferry Rd, Biloxi, MS 39532

How does science help manage oil spills? What information could help us strengthen oil spill response? How can we improve data sharing so it is early and often and collected in a format that can be used by all?

This seminar is targeted for researchers, emergency responders, and others interested in how science is currently and can be incorporated into response efforts. Through panel discussions and case studies, we’ll learn how oil spill response works and new science that can be used to respond to, monitor, and recover from oil spills. This is one of three Responding to oil spills seminars. The other two will focus on nearshore habitats and beaches (Nov – click here) and offshore response techniques.
