In this project, conceptual modeling and syntheses of data from Gulf Watch Alaska was conducted to help improve the integration of information across research disciplines and ensures relevance for resource management in the EVOS-affected region.
Historic Data Compilation
In this project, led by Matt Jones of the National Center for Ecological Analysis and Synthesis (NCEAS), a data management system was built that allowed the rescue and preservation of 126 historical data sets spanning the 28-year period since the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989.
Lingering Oil Component
From 2012-2016, Gulf Watch Alaska included a Lingering Oil component which encompassed two projects focused on collecting and maintaining information regarding locations and concentrations of Exxon Valdez spilled oil and movement of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) through the Prince William Sound ecosystem. These projects have long-term data sets that contain information dating back to 1990.
