Database of Projects on the Human Impacts of the Deepwater Horizon Oil SpillBelow you will find information we have compiled on research into the human impacts of the DWH spill. Filter results by selecting a “Focus Area” and/or a “State,” or enter a keyword. Click the Submit button to filter the results, or click the text link to clear all filters. Please note: This database is dynamic and will be updated quarterly. The database was not designed to be an extensive annotative review of human impact–related research studies of the DWH oil spill, thus it is possible relevant studies may be omitted. Due to this limitation, we invite users to send the research team information on studies not yet included in the database. If you know of a project we should include, please submit your suggestion. We will review and add it, or contact you if we have questions. Thanks! To learn how we developed this database, download our Overview paper.
