Responding to oil spills: Nearshore & beach habitats

Monday, November 13, 2017
9:00a CT – 4:00p CT (registration starts at 8:30a CT)
Disaster Response Center, 7344 Zeigler Blvd., Mobile, AL 36608


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. One will focus on wetlands (Oct – click here) and the other will focus on offshore response techniques.
