The Earl of Oil

WHOI chemist Chris Reddy describes his work on the November 2007 San Francisco Bay oil spill, which occurred when the M/V Cosco Busan struck the San Francisco-Oakland Bay Bridge and released 58,000 gallons of heavy fuel oil. Director of the WHOI Coastal Ocean Institute, Reddy studies the short- and long-term fate of oil in marine environments, with an eye toward finding better ways to “engineer” cleanups.   (Photo by Jayne Doucette, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
