Title: Residual Oiling of Armored Beaches and Mussel Beds in the GOA

Project Year and Number: 1999: 99459

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 2000: 00459

Principal Investigator (PI): Gail Irvine, US Geological Survey

Assisting Personnel: Dan Mann, Jeff Short

Research Location: Kodiak, Alaska Peninsula, Kenai Peninsula

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Intertidal Organisms , Mussels

Abstract: For at least five years after the spill, oil mousse persisted on the exposed rocky shores of the Alaska and Kenai peninsulas in a remarkably unweathered state. This project will resample these boulder-armored beach sites that were last studied in 1994. In addition, several oiled mussel beds in the Gulf of Alaska that had relatively high levels of oiling in 1993 will be resampled, to compare residual oiling of these with oiled mussel beds in Prince William Sound. A mixture of qualitative and semi-quantitative approaches will be used.
