Abstract:

The Deepwater Horizon database contains oceanographic and hydrocarbon measurements collected from water, air, and sediment during and after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. It is 2.4 GB in size and contains 8 million georeferenced data points (in situ and laboratory measurements) from government, academic, citizen science, and industry sources. The database integrates 38 data sets covering 640,000 square km from 4673 m altitude and 2850 m depth from 2010 to 2012. More details can be found in the publication: Thessen, A.E., McGinnis, S., and E.W. North. 2016. Lessons learned while building the Deepwater Horizon Database: Toward improved data sharing in coastal science. Comput. Geosci. 87: 84-90. http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.cageo.2015.12.001

Purpose:

The database was populated for the purpose of model validation and estimation of hydrocarbon degradation rates.
