Abstract: This project will assess the amount of oil remaining from the oil spill on shorelines within Prince William Sound in FY 01. During Summer 2001, a stratified random sample of shoreline was intensively sampled for surface and subsurface oil to estimate length of oiled shoreline, area and volume of oiled sediment, and volume of oil. Approximately 8 km were sampled by digging about 8,000 pits to discover and quantify subsurface oil. In FY 02, the project will perform data and chemical analysis, and prepare a final report and journal publications.
