The Sea Grant Oil Spill Science Outreach Team is pleased to announce a new opportunity to learn more about oil spill response and the science that guides it:
Responding to oil spills: Coastal wetland habitats
October 26, 2017 – Biloxi, MS, MSU Coastal Research and Extension Center (Popps Ferry Rd), 9:00 to 4:00 (Live streaming also available)
Researchers and emergency responders will gather to explain how science is currently incorporated into response efforts and to discuss ways this process may be improved. It will be the first of three Responding to oil spills seminars—the others will focus on nearshore and beach habitats and on offshore response techniques. A live, interactive webcast will be available for those who cannot attend in person.
