As you know, NOAA's Office of Response and Restoration 
<http://response.restoration.noaa.gov/> develops and employs critical 
scientific solutions to marine pollution caused by humans such as oil 
and chemical spills, and plastics in the ocean. To help clear the murky 
waters of tackling these hazards, the scientists and staff at OR&R have 
launched a *Response and Restoration Blog 
<http://usresponserestoration.wordpress.com/>* and would love to have 
you join the discussion!

We've already posted on:

    * The challenges of explaining the scale of the BP oil spill in the
      Gulf of Mexico,
    * What happens to corals when ship captains watch boxing matches and
      not where their ships are going,
    * Planning for potential oil spill impacts on Arctic ecosystems,
    * The many doppelgangers for oil spilled in the ocean,
    * And, of course, pirates

We'll talk a lot about the dirty issues affecting our ocean and coasts - 
oil spills, hazardous waste sites, microplastics and other marine debris 
- and how we're working to cleanup and restore America's waters. Keep up 
with and join the discussion by email, RSS
