Gulf Monitoring Consortium – Guests from SkyTruth, SouthWings & Waterkeeper

Broadcast on 2012/01/14 (AZ Time)

Remember the BP Oil Spill in the Gulf of Mexico? Lots of us do. This consortium is an innovative partnership that is systematically monitoring oil pollution in the Gulf of Mexico with satellite images and mapping, aerial reconnaissance and photography, and on-the-water observation and sampling. This unique effort led by three non-profit organizations is collecting and publishing images, observations and sampling data of the Gulf of Mexico. They are positioned to rapidly respond to reported and suspected oil pollution incidents. No wonder I can’t sleep the night before the show! This show sponsored by Chapman Tucson.
