NOAA and USCG focus on Coastal Oil Spills

The US Coast Guard and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will conduct pollution response training with various local, state, and federal agencies focusing on coastal oil spills and aftermath shoreline assessments in the Charleston area.

The training will be conducted by NOAA and will feature sessions by Bradford Benggio, the NOAA Scientific Support Coordinator for the Coast Guard Seventh District, Dr. Jacqueline Michel, and others who are part of NOAA's Scientific Support Team for oil spill responses.

This team of scientists have worldwide oil spill response experience, including the Exxon Valdez disaster in Alaska, the New Carissa that grounded off the Oregon coast, the Prestige off the coast of Spain, the 1993 Tampa Bay Oil Spill, and the New Horizon Gulf of Mexico spill. This team has helped develop oil spill contingency plans and train responders for the United States and throughout the world.
