Our laboratory has been working very hard the past week and a half, we focused mainly on the environmental surveys that our laboratory performs. specifically in sandy beach ecology and environmental toxicology. We have sent out teams of faculty and researchers to characterize the sandy beaches that surround the site of Refugio State beach, the site of the oil spill.
The progression of our efforts can be seen at http://oil.piratelab.org. We will be working to incorporate our Remotely Piloted Systems into the impact characterization, and we will be documenting that aspect in the following posts!
