Chemical and laboratory analyses oceanographic data were collected aboard the Wes Bordelon in the Gulf of Mexico from 2010-08-18 to 2010-08-22 in response to the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Event on April 20, 2010, by the Subsurface Monitoring Unit (SMU), which consisted of multiple government and corporate agencies. These data include Semivolatile Organic Compounds, Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons (TPH) and Volatile Organic Compounds. The instruments used to collect these data included bottle along with other physical sampling devices. The analytical chemistry data are provisional and provide results of onshore laboratory analysis of water and sediment samples. (NODC Accession 0074863)

For more information and documentation related to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill event, see NODC Accession 0065140.
Purpose The Subsurface Monitoring Unit (SMU) was formed by US Federal Government Agencies NOAA and EPA working with BP as part of the coordinated response to the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill (MC252 incident) in the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010. The SMU coordinated DWH response data collection and sampling efforts across Academia, private and US Federal, State and International agencies and scientists. The goal of the data collection and sampling efforts was to support comprehensive characterization of the Gulf of Mexico sub-surface conditions as well as the fate and transport of dispersed petroleum as a result of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
