Title: Petroleum Hydrocarbons in Near-Surface Seawater of PWS, Alaska, following EVOS II: Analysis of Caged Mussels

Project Year and Number: 1989: AW03

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1992: ST03-B, 1992: ST03-A, 1991: ST03, 1990: AW03

Principal Investigator (PI): Jeff Short, NOAA

Assisting Personnel: Pat Harris

Research Location: All Spill Affected Areas

Restoration Category: Damage Assessment

Injured Resources Addressed: Mussels , Sediments

Abstract: This project will assess the geographic and temporal distribution of dissolved and particulate hydrocarbons in the water column and deposited in sediments resulting from the EVOS. Knowledge of these concentrations will determine whether violations of State of Alaska Water Quality Criteria have occurred, and will allow estimation of the exposure risk of subsurface marine biota to petroleum hydrocarbons.
