NJIT professor collaborated on new federal report on Deepwater Horizon oil spill
Date:7/12/2013

NJIT Professor Michel Boufadel, is a co-author of a new expert report on the effects of the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) Mississippi Canyon-252 oil spill on ecosystem services in the Gulf of Mexico.

Entitled "An Ecosystem Services Approach to Assessing the Impacts of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico," the report, published by the National Academy of Sciences, makes the case for how and why a more resilient Gulf of Mexico ecosystem needs to be developed. Recommendations include a plea to build an infrastructure to organize and integrate data. The National Research Council prepared the report based on the committee's report. Download the report free at http://www.nap.edu. For more information, contact the Ocean Studies Board at (202) 334-2714 or visit http://dels.nas.edu/osb.

Boufadel is an expert in the field of oil spill research, especially the Deepwater Horizon blow-out. He was formerly a professor at Temple University, chairing its department of civil and environmental engineering plus directing the Center for Natural Resources Development and Protection.

A Professional Engineer and Professional Hydrologist (accredited by the American Institute of Hydrology), Boufadel is also a familiar face at the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) where he currently serves on the EPA Science Advisory Board for natural gas extraction from shale formations.

Boufadel's projects include floodplain delineation for Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) and checking contamination in urban streams. He was involved in the response to the DWH blowout and has received funding from the Unified Command to evaluate oil biodegradation in the Gulf of Mexico beaches following the blowout. The findings of that project can be found in the Report of the Operation Science Advisory Team, which he co-authored. He w
