The Deepwater Horizon oil spill occurred in 2010 roughly 50 miles off the Louisiana coastline. Nearly 172 million gallons of oil entered the Gulf of Mexico, impacting animals, humans, and the environment. In this webinar, experts will provide insights into Deepwater Horizon’s impacts to Louisiana – specifically on human communities, wetland plants and fish – as well paths forward into the future.

Ocean Commotion is going VIRTUAL this year!
More details coming soon …
The National Working Waterfront Network (NWWN) and NOAA’s Office for Coastal Management will host a webinar on economic resources for working waterfront communities available via the Digital Coast. The webinar will highlight publicly-available economic data sets, learning opportunities (including economic trainings and e-learning modules), and case studies that demonstrate how these resources can inform local decision-making. Recently released marine national economy statistics, which offer the most inclusive national estimates for all ocean, coastal and Great Lakes economic activity by major industry, will also be discussed.
