My Knauss Fellowship with NOAA has started and I have been thrown into the restoration process taking place in the Gulf of Mexico related to the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. Currently my position in NOAA Restoration Center has me down in Louisiana participating in public scoping meetings. This process seeks input from the public related to restoration types that could be used to compensated the public for damages to natural resources from the oil spill. The task is daunting but it is encouraging to be working with a highly dedicated group of people with lots of knowledge!
