Arctic Mussels Icon

Project Overview

Understand which response method (dispersants versus in-situ burning) has a greater effect on Arctic mussel toxicity and whether the extreme seasonal differences in sunlight cause each response method to be more toxic in the summer than in the winter. The project will conclude with data synthesis and completed knowledge products.
