Injury Assessment and Restoration Class - Research that involves the collection and analysis of information to: 1) evaluate the nature and extent of environmental, human health, and socioeconomic injuries resulting from an incident; 2) determine the restoration actions needed to restore natural resources and their services to pre-spill conditions; and, 3) make the environment and public whole after interim losses.
Using the OPRTP framework as a guide, member organizations of the Interagency Committee managed and funded a number of new and on-going research projects. Catalogued below are Injury Assessment and Restoration Class research projects under taken by the member agencies of the Interagency Committee during Fiscal Years 2016 - 2017. Please note that in many instances, research is being conducted by other entities such as federal agencies not currently represented on the Interagency Committee, or by state, local, academic and industry researchers which are not captured below. Interagency Committee members closely monitor these efforts, and coordinate with these entities.
