Deepwater Horizon Incident, Gulf of Mexico | Recent and Historical Incidents | Emergency Response | NOAA's National Ocean Service Office of Response and Restoration

NOAA scientists are participating on a flow rate task force. The National Incident Command’s Flow Rate Technical Group (FRTG) is designed to support the response and inform the public by providing scientifically validated information about the amount of oil flowing from BP’s leaking oil well while ensuring the vital efforts to cap the leak are not impeded.

Today, a briefing was held in Mobile, Alabama, to educate TV Weather personnel on NOAA Trajectory Prediction maps and how forecasts are created. There were 22 participants. For further information, see: NOAA Trajectory Maps Presentation (Document format: PDF, size: 1.3 M).
