Spills, Sediment, and Shoreline Contamination

We have all been aware about oil spills that have occurred in our coastal waters with the most recent having been noticed off Carrera Island in October 2017, contaminating the waters in Chaguaramas and even reaching as far as Cocorite.

Recently there was an article published in the Reviews of Geophysics by Gustitus and Clement (2017)  which provided insight about the impact and formation of oil sediment residues particularly on nearshore marine environments.

Via the link below T. Prabhakar Clement has provided some explanations on their research and the oil sediment residue phenomenon.

Currently employed with the Water and Sewerage Authority at the Water Resources Agency, I have created this blog to provide an online presence for the Agency's library. The purpose of this blog would be to inform staff about library related activities, as well as, relevant information that can have an impact on the Agency's operation.
