Research Results Post Deepwater Horizon


800px-Deepwater_Horizon_offshore_drilling_unit_on_fire_2010Neptune 911 posted updates heavily during and after the Deepwater Horizon in the Gulf of Mexico.  Since that disaster, numerous news releases have reported on the oil spill’s aftermath–some crafted out of public relations offices and others hard reported.

Sea Web.org recently released these research documents that are available for public view.  (OA designates Open Access.)  You be the judge.
