Chief Scientist Recommendation: Fund
Chief Scientist Comments: This project is completing a revisitation of oiled sites on the Katmai Coast and will provide valuable information on the persistence of oil in the Gulf of Alaska environment. The proposed paper in FY 01 is not as compelling as the work in FY 00; the project should be closed out in FY 00.
