Project Information

Title: Hydrocarbon Monitoring: Integration of Microbial and Chemical Sediment Data

Project Year and Number: 1995: 95026

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1997: 97026-CLO

Principal Investigator (PI): Joan Braddock, University of Alaska Fairbanks

Assisting Personnel: Jon Lindstrom, Susan Sugai

Research Location: All Spill Affected Areas

Restoration Category: Monitoring

Injured Resources Addressed: Sediments

Abstract: The project would use existing data sets on marine sediment microbial responses to hydrocarbon pollutants and existing chemistry data to estimate field rates of biodegradation for hydrocarbon fractions; establish upper and lower estimates of persistence of these hydrocarbons and help establish a natural rate of recovery of oiled sediments; refine a tool of using relatively inexpensive microbial analyses as predictors of oil residue; and respond to previous peer review comments that microbiology and chemistry data should be synthesized.
