To further add to the chipper pre-Thanksgiving mood (FOUR DAY WEEKEND, WOOHOO!!!), I’m pleased to bring you two announcements here at DSN.
Firstly, Sunday Oil Spill news roundups will become a weekly feature here on the blog. The impacts of the Deepwater Horizon spill will go on for years, but unfortunately the news coverage will continue to wane as the visual reminders fade. I’ll keep you in the know with all the latest scientific/political news related to the BP spill, succinctly summarized by yours truly.
Secondly, I’ll also be planning some more research blogging series on oil spill-related topics, along the same lines as the uber-popular discourse on dispersants.
But this time, there’s a twist: YOU tell me what you want to know. What questions have been nagging your brain? What hasn’t the mainstream media covered in enough detail? I’ll take the most popular topics, whip up a literature review, pour through my tome of notes from the Deepwater Horizon meetings I’ve attended, sprinkle in a bit of scientific commentary, and voila—hot from the oven, a couple of reader-requested blogging series. So give me your suggestions via the comment form below, or send me a mention @Dr_Bik on twitter. The first new series will be announced on December 1st…stay tuned!
