On April 20, 2010, The Deepwater Horizon Oil Rig Exploded

For 87 days, more than 210 million gallons of crude oil spewed into the Gulf of Mexico affecting an area the size of North Dakota.  Jim Brinkman represented the EPA and NOAA on the response and natural resource damage assessment.  He will present the enormity of the challenge to monitor and evaluate recovery processes and the extent of damages to the flora and fauna of the area.
