Recently, NOAA launched DIVER Explorer (Data Integration Visualization Exploration and Reporting), a data warehouse and query tool of the validated Natural Resource Damage Assessment (NRDA) data resulting from the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) NRDA. DIVER also contains analytical chemistry and bioassay data collected under the DWH Response, historical Gulf Coast sampling data and continues to add new data as it is validated. Guided and custom queries are possible due to DIVER standardizing the data entered. More information about the data contained is available on their overview page.
In addition to the “Oil Spill Science Seminar: Impacts of Oil on Coast Habitats” on July 22 in Temple Terrace, FL, Sea Grant’s Oil Spill and Outreach team has two more seminars in August.
Navigating Shifting Sands: Oil on our Beaches, August 5, Pensacola, FL
Impacts of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill to Gulf Wetlands, August 11, Slidell, LA
Details on all three seminars can be found here. The workshops are free, but registration is required.
