Exxon Valdez Oil Spill Posters

The 10th anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill (EVOS) was sponsored by the EVOS Trustee Council to present the results of 10 years of Federal and state research on the effects of the 1989 spill in Prince William Sound, Alaska. The results of several important ABL studies were presented. The research was critical to answering questions concerning long-term persistence of oil, toxicity effects of concentrations at parts-per-billion (not parts-per-million as previously assumed), and sensitivity to oil at different life stages of marine organisms in Prince William Sound.

The results of the ABL studies are relevant not only to Alaska and Prince William Sound, but also to other areas where chronic oil discharges (such as parking lot run-off) can enter water bodies that provide habitat for vulnerable life stages of aquatic organisms. Because they could lead to regulatory changes, these studies have national significance and have attracted national attention from both the media and scientists.
