Chris’ work to develop a resource allocation database for Arctic oil spill response was heralded by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and the U.S. Coast Guard, as it modeled the data, resources and equipment necessary to respond to a catastrophic oil spill in the Arctic.

Congratulations Travis and Chris!
