2010 AGU Fall Meeting Session on Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill

#1 Post by liu » Thu Aug 05, 2010 12:53 am

Dear colleagues,

We seek speakers for the following session at the 2010 AGU Fall Meeting, to be held 13-18 December 2010 in San Francisco, California.

Session OS30: Lessons Learned From the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill: Physical Oceanography

The Deepwater Horizon oil spill presents an unprecedented threat to the Gulf of Mexico coasts. Effective oil spill tracking and prediction systems are critical for the ongoing response effort. Accurate hindcast modeling systems are essential for assessing the damage and long-term impacts. Presentations concerning in situ and remote sensing observations, theory, and modeling work focusing on the oil spill movement and fate are encouraged. Topics of particular interest include 1) tracking the oil spill by satellites, aircrafts, vessels, AUVs, gliders, profilers, etc., and 2) numerical models simulating the trajectory and fate of the oil spill. Experiences from other oil spill cases are also welcome.

Abstracts should be submitted beginning July 21, 2010 at: http://www.agu.org/meetings/fm10/

After submitting an abstract for this session through the web form, please send a copy to both conveners. This will ensure your abstract has been forwarded to us for review without relying solely on the automated system. Please note that the deadline for abstracts is 2 September 2010.

We look forward to your abstracts and attendance.

Yonggang & Amy
