Development of the Gulf of Mexico Marine Debris ModelWebsite or Online Data - 2010
"The purpose of the model is to characterize spatial differences in the distribution of relatively large, storm-mobilized and deposited, anthropogenic marine debris objects across the nearshore seafloor so as to help prioritize these areas for survey. The guidance for developing the model was that it should be conceptually and statistically robust and based upon the data collected by the GOMMDP. In addition, the model should be as applicable as possible to a generic storm event, or a storm event to occur in the future"--Goal.
