  • Description:
    "The meeting, held at Louisiana State University on May 26 and 27, 2010, consisted of plenary sessions where invited speakers gave an overview of dispersant use in past oil spills, as well as an overview of the DWH incident and the response to date. Four breakout groups discussed key aspects of dispersant use in the DWH response: (1) Efficacy and effectiveness of surface and deep ocean dispersants use; (2) Physical transport and chemical behavior of dispersants and dispersed oil; (3) Exposure pathways and biological effects resulting from deep ocean application of dispersants; and (4) Exposure pathways and biological effects resulting from surface application of dispersants. Meeting participants were selected by a planning committee comprised of government and international partners with expertise in dispersants and oil spill response and research; meeting participants (Appendix B) represented a wide range of issue-related expertise and background, and included representatives from federal, state and foreign government agencies, as well as industry and academia"--Meeting organization and structure.
