What research themes are to be addressed by the Research Consortium proposals?

asked in Research Themes by anonymous

1 Answer

There are five research themes:
1.    Physical distribution, dispersion, and dilution of petroleum (oil and gas), its constituents, and associated contaminants (e.g., dispersants) under the action of physical oceanographic processes, air–sea interactions, and tropical storms.
2.    Chemical evolution and biological degradation of the petroleum/dispersant systems and subsequent interaction with coastal, open-ocean, and deep-water ecosystems.
3.    Environmental effects of the petroleum/dispersant system on the sea floor, water column, coastal waters, beach sediments, wetlands, marshes, and organisms; and the science of ecosystem recovery.
4.    Technology developments for improved response, mitigation, detection, characterization, and remediation associated with oil spills and gas releases.
5.    Fundamental scientific research integrating results from the other four themes in the context of public health.

Each Research Consortium proposal is expected to develop and enunciate a clear plan to address any one of these themes or a cross-disciplinary program of work involving a grouping of some of these topics.
