Brochure title:
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory: Oil Spill Research at the Extremes
Description:
The ever-changing and uncertain global climate of the 21st century requires innovative research and strategic planning to address challenges related to climate change, extreme events, energy exploration and generation, and environmental protection. Catastrophic events like the 2010 Deepwater Horizon event in the Gulf of Mexico, along with new oil exploration in the Arctic, drive the need for enhanced research and modeling tools to support oil spill response in under-studied conditions (e.g., high pressure and low temperature), oil and dispersant tracking, and prioritization of coastal areas for cleanup.
