Database that provides information on research into the human impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

The database has not been designed to offer an extensive, annotated review of projects; rather, it is an easy-to-navigate introduction to the array of ongoing or completed work. The database lists seven key characteristics of each project, including whom to contact to obtain more information.
