Science Objectives

1. Investigate the variability in composition of seeping hydrocarbons at sites along the CA margin.
2. Investigate the changes in chemical composition of seeped oils as they weather.
3. Investigate the distribution and nature of hydrocarbon seepage and biodegradation along the CA margin.
4. Identify and map hydrocarbon/tar sources and related features along the CA margin.
5. investigate the fate of dissolved hydrocarbons in the waters along the CA margin.
6. Deploy in-situ incubation devices for microbial growth, for recover in 2013.
