Scope of Work:

Several workshops are being supported this year. They include the Dispersent Working Group, Oil in Ice Conference, Alaska Marine Sciences Symposium, Alaska Forum on the Environment, and the AOOS/OSRI Drifter Field Experiment workshop. The Alaska Marine Sciences Symposium and the Alaska Forum on the Environment are annual workshops that present issues relevant to OSRI?s goals. The Dispersent Working Group meeting is designed to examine the appropriateness of the use of dispersants in Alaskan waters. The Oil in Ice workshop examines environmental issues and techniques associated with oil spills in ice covered seas. The AOOS/OSRI drifter experiment meeting is to develop a comprehensive field experiment to test numerical circulation models using drifters.
