Here at OR&R, we develop scientific solutions to help keep the coasts clean from oil, chemicals, marine debris, and other forms of marine pollution. During Pollution Prevention Week, we’re asking the question, “What can you do to prevent marine pollution?”
Incident Responses for August 2019alyssa.dillonTue, 09/10/2019 - 12:12
Every month our Emergency Response Division provides scientific expertise and services to the U.S. Coast Guard on everything from running oil spill trajectories to model where the spill may spread, to possible effects on wildlife and fisheries and estimates on how long the oil may stay in the environment.
This month OR&R responded to 10 incidents, including oil discharges, sunken vessels, and other pollution-related incidents.
