Collection of scribe databases compiled in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill incident in the Gulf of Mexico from 04/23/2010 to 11/08/2011 (NCEI Accession 0086261)

Metadata Updated: December 1, 2023

The Scribe Database Collection includes 14 databases containing data from the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) Oil Spill Event Response Phase. These databases are the work of federal agencies, state environmental management agencies and BP and its contractors. The types of information include locations, descriptions, and analysis of water, sediment, oil, tar, dispersant, air and other environmental samples. The versions of the databases included in this collection are the result of the second phase of a clean-up effort by the database owners and contributors to resolve inconsistencies in the initial databases and to harmonize content across the databases in order for these data to be comparable for reliable evaluation and reporting. This effort was initiated in order to meet requirements supporting the Unified Area Command.
