CAMPRI Oil Thickness
Coordinating Recent Advances in Estimating and Measuring Oil Slick Thickness (CAMRPI)
Sponsored by NOAA Office of Response and Restoration (OR&R) via funding from Canada Oceans Protection Plan’s Multi-Partner Oil Spill Research Initiative (MPRI) in partnership with Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) and hosted by the Coastal Response Research Center, University of New Hampshire.
This event includes a 2-day workshop on Wednesday & Thursday, November 13 & 14. The Ohmsett event will be on Friday, November 15 (1/2 day).
Goals for this Project:
Bring together an international team of experts who are currently working largely independently to advance the collective ability to determine oil slick thickness and overall oil slick characterization. This will allow researchers to: benefit from work conducted to date; understand and compare challenges and successes; build on completed research; and identify research gaps and plans to address them.
Move beyond discussions of methods’ strengths and weaknesses with a series of controlled experiments at BSEE’s Oil Spill Response Research and Renewable Energy Test facility in Leonardo (New Jersey) (the OHMSETT facility) to actually measure and compare various techniques for characterizing oil thickness.
Conduct field test various methods, based on the OHMSETT experiments, to determine field readiness levels and performance.
