Principal Investigator (PI): Jeff Short, NOAA

Assisting Personnel: Pat Harris, Mandy Lindeberg, Jacek Maselko, Jerome Pella, Jeep Rice

Research Location: Prince William Sound, Gulf of Alaska

Abstract: This project will assess the amount of oil remaining from the oil spill on shorelines within Prince William Sound. FY 01 funding will be requested in two phases. Phase 1 (Oct.-Nov.) produced a sampling design. Phase 2 (Dec.-Sept.) will intensively sample a stratified random sample of shoreline for surface and subsurface oil to estimate length of oiled shoreline, area and volume of oiled sediment, and volume of oil. Approximately 8 kilometers will be sampled by digging more than 8,000 pits to discover and quantify subsurface oil.
