We will host an Oil in the Sea IV series through the months of June-December, 2023. A sixteen-member committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine released Oil in the Sea IV:  Inputs, Fates, and Effects in September 2022.  This report, the fourth in a series, documents the current state-of-knowledge on inputs, fates and effects of oil in the sea, reflecting almost 20 additional years of research, including long-term effects from spills such as the Exxon Valdez and a decade-long boom in oil spill science research following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.  The report identifies research gaps and provides specific recommendations aimed at preventing future accidental spills and ensuring oil spill responders are equipped with the best response tools and information to limit oil’s impact on the marine environment.
