Oil Biodegradation and Bioremediation: A Tale of the Two Worst Spills in U.S. History
BP's Deepwater Horizon blowout in the Gulf of Mexico drew inevitable comparisons with what until then was the nation's worst environmental catastrophe, the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Prince William Sound, Alaska. In ES&T's Best Feature of 2011, Ronald Atlas, of the University of Louisville, and Terry Hazen, then of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and now at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, point out the key differences in the environmental impacts of the two spills.
