Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Resources

Funded by the National Science Foundation, the National Council for Science and the Environment and partners have created the Online Clearinghouse for Education & Networking: Oil Interdisciplinary Learning (OCEAN-OIL), an open-access, peer-reviewed electronic education resource about the Deepwater Horizon disaster.  OCEAN-OIL offers hyper-linked encyclopedia-style articles related to the Gulf of Mexico oil disaster; a glossary of terms related to oil spill causes, impacts, clean-up, and prevention; acronyms; image galleries; news sources; education; and much more.  The OCEAN-OIL website is integrated into the Encyclopedia of Earth as a subcategory under the Energy topic.  The collection is constantly being updated, and contributions are welcomed.
