The Sea Grant Oil Spill Science Outreach Program is excited to announce two new offerings – a publication and a free workshop – to kick off 2017. Please spread the word through your networks.
Think you know everything there is to know about oil? The publication “Frequently asked questions: Oil edition” details the ins and outs of petroleum – from where it originates to what it’s made of to how scientists track it in the environment.

In February, please join us for a free seminar in New Orleans in-person or remotely through your computer and phone:
Exploring the intersection between oil spill science and response
February 6th, 2016 - 1:00 - 5:00 pm (Central)
Hyatt Regency New Orleans, LA, Bolden 6 room
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. Please visit our webpage for more information and to register: http://gulfseagrant.org/oil-spill-science-workshop-exploring-the-intersection-between-oil-spill-science-and-response/ Questions about the workshop? Please contact Monica Wilson with UF/IFAS Sea Grant via email or at (727) 553-3516.
We are continuously working to deliver peer-reviewed science to you. Contact your local Sea Grant Oil Spill Science Outreach Specialist for more information: http://gulfseagrant.org/oilspilloutreach/contact-a-member-of-the-oil-spill-outreach-project/
