Title: USGS Collects Sediment Core at Gulf Island
U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists collected environmental data and samples in coastal areas affected by the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Samples of water, sediments, benthic invertebrates, and microorganisms were collected by the USGS at beach, barrier island, and wetland environments of the Gulf of Mexico coastal states before and after petroleum-associated product arrived on shore.
In this photo, USGS scientist Terry Petrosky has collected three samples for invertebrate analysis and is in the process of coring to produce a bulk sediment sample at Gulf Island near Navarre, Florida.
