Title: Injury to Deep Benthos

Project Year and Number: 1991: ST02-B

Other Fiscal Years and Numbers for this Project: 1992: ST02-B, 1990: AW02, 1989: AW02

Principal Investigator (PI): Howard Feder, University of Alaska Fairbanks

Assisting Personnel: None

Research Location:

Restoration Category: Damage Assessment

Injured Resources Addressed: Subtidal Organisms

Abstract: Part I: A peer review of the Status Report for this project suggests that the biological data be reanalyzed to sort out sedimentological effects and to relate biotic parameters to petroleum contaminants in sediments. The objective of this work is to complete sediment analyses for all stations examined and to analyze the data to relate the biological results to sediment parameters as suggested by the peer review.

Part II: Assuming that reanalysis of the deep benthic biological data relative to sediment parameters at the study sites reinforces the conclusions in Feder (1991), the deep benthic study will be continued until all samples have been examined and a Final Report can be written. The fourteen study sites chosen on the NOAA ship in July 1990 were selected at random with 7 oiled and 7 unoiled sites chosen.
