Good morning from the Great Barrier Reef,

Here Corexit 9527 was recently used to disperse a slick resulting from the grounding of the coal carrier Shen Neng 1 on a coral shoal.
We also published a paper on the effects of Corexit 9527 - in this case the effects on coral fertilization and larval settlement in Acropora.
