With the growing use of heavier crude oils and refined products, the percentage of subsurface oil spills has increased over the last decade. Submerged oils provide response challenges significantly different from those of floating oils. The Center, NOAA and the U.S. Coast Guard recognize these challenges and are committed to coordinating programs and leveraging resources to better address submerged oil issues.
The specific goals of the Submerged Oil Workshop were to identify research needs on submerged oil pertaining to containment and recovery, detection and monitoring, fate and transport, effects and restoration, and protection of water intakes.
The Center is pleased to release the Submerged Oil-State of the Practice and Research Needs workshop report.
