The Sea Grant Oil Spill Science Outreach Program announced three new outreach publications – all focused on dispersants. You may access the PDF of each individual publication by clicking on its title.
Learn why and how dispersants are used during oil spills and how they were used during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Learn about the effectiveness and persistence of dispersants in the environment and whether it was necessary to use dispersants at the subsurface.
Learn how dispersants impact aquatic life in terms of life stage and species, and how lab and field studies can provide a more complete picture of the implications of exposure to oil and dispersants.
They also posted the recordings of recent Sea Grant seminars that focus on dispersants:
