Abstract: The periodic reassessment of the resources and services injured by the Exxon Valdez Oil Spill (EVOS) is essential to understanding effects of the original spill and lingering oil, documenting recovery of resources, and identifying new areas where additional restoration action or research may be needed. The proposed work is designed to synthesize restoration work performed to date; develop a scientifically sound process for objectively assessing the status of resources and services classified as injured, recovering, or unknown; distinguish (where possible) the contribution of other stressors to the condition of the resource; identify appropriate restoration actions for resources that are not recovering; and definitively identify resources that are unlikely to be suffering any residual injury from the 1989 spill. This proposal addresses all resources and services currently classified as Not Recovered, Recovering, or Recovery Unknown.
