Mitigating the Damage to Arctic Copepods from Surface Oil Spills: When to Apply Dispersants




Bigelow Laboratory
for Ocean Sciences


The objective of this project is to identify the current state-of-the-art Arctic maritime oil spill response modeling, potential integration of these models, and specific needs to be addressed to obtain models that will be functional and effective in the response time scale to advance the Federal On-Scene Coordinator’s decision making during an incident. This will be accomplished through an Arctic Maritime Spill Response Modeling workshop focused on goals to provide a pathway towards a useful oil spill response model that will inform decision-makers during spills.
