asked in Research Themes by admin

1 Answer

Observations and/or sampling under RFP-III are to support the research themes in RFP-I and RFP-II. These are the following five 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.
