Refugio Oil Spill 2015
Here are the most recent images of our pre-oil spill sandy beach monitoring. Our annual sandy beach monitoring was slated to start on June 1, but we began running up to sites on May 20th to characterize beach communities pre-spill. Our lab monitors the health of our coastal communities, with a particular interest in all aspects of sandy beach ecosystems (economics, recreation, ecology, etc.). We are now using seeking to use the sandy beach communities to assess oil spill impacts from this Refugio oil spill.
