Dear coral listers
Apologies for any cross-postings (and to non-USA listers).   
We are conducting a study for the UK Government's Department for
Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) to explore the practicalities of
implementing Annex II  (assessing environmental damages, restoration and
valuation) of the European Union's forthcoming Environmental Liability
Directive.  One of the study objectives is to investigate experience of
damage assessments in the USA, because much of Annex II has been derived
from OPA and CERCLA regulations.   We aim to do this using a brief email
questionnaire survey exploring both successes and problems encountered.   
We would really appreciate hearing from anyone who has been involved in any
Natural Resource Damage Assessments in the USA, in any way, relating to
coral reefs or any habitat type. From our own experience of coral reef
damage assessments, there seems to be much that can be learned from coral
related cases. 
If you would like to help by completing a brief questionnaire then please
let us know. The questionnaire results will be sent to all those who
Many thanks
Best regards
