Exploring the intersection between oil spill science and response

February 6, 2017 from 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm

This workshop will allow local scientists working on oil spill research and local emergency responders to clearly communicate their needs and form partnerships. Scientists will share peer reviewed research results that can be applied to response and responders will share response priorities.

Goals and objectives of this workshop include:

Discuss the challenges in researcher and responder collaboration.
Discuss how to get involved with response.
Discuss tools and documents that would be useful for researchers and responders.
Discuss how researchers can get involved in response planning and how their research results can be incorporated into future responses.

This workshop is free and open to the public. It is being held in conjunction with the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference, but workshop attendees do NOT need to register for the conference.
