Tulane University’s Disaster Resilience Leadership Academy (TU/DRLA) and the Consortium for Resilient Gulf Communities (CRGC) reviewed literature and compiled a bibliography pertaining to hydrocarbon events from the past three decades. This annotated bibliography includes 99 documents published from 1989-2005, drawing upon the 2010 Deepwater Horizon (DH) oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and other hydrocarbon events from across the globe. This resource was developed by CRGC partners.
Tulane's riverfront campus is devoted to the study and preservation of Louisiana's waterways and coast. The Bywater Institute's mission is to foster applied research and community engagement on coastal concerns as well as incubate innovation within the emerging environmental and energy sectors. Tulane University is a CRGC partner.
The Coastal Resource and Resiliency Center conducts lay health worker trainings in the coastal parishes and counties of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, and Florida. Its primary goal is to improve overall health outcomes in the target area, especially among disadvantaged and under-served populations. CRRC is a CRGC partner.

Work or play along the Gulf Coast? Know what to do in the event of an accidental spill. This resource, made possible in part by a grant from the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative and the Sea Grant programs of Texas, Louisiana, Florida, and Mississippi-Alabama, provides boaters with information on how to prevent accidental oil spills, what to do if they see an oil spill, and who to contact to report such an event.
Did the 2010 BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill have similar psychosocial impacts as the 1989 Exxon Valdez oil spill? The authors answer this question by comparing survey results from a random sample of Cordova, Alaska, residents collected 18 months after the Exxon spill with a random sample of residents in the Alabama coastal counties of Baldwin and south Mobile 1 year after the BP disaster.
There is considerable research interest on the meaning and measurement of resilience from a variety of research perspectives including those from the hazards/disasters and global change communities. This paper provides a new framework, the disaster resilience of place (DROP) model, designed to improve comparative assessments of disaster resilience at the local or community level.
