Oil Spill Effect on Salt Marshes

In this 10-min video, Dr Irv Mendelssohn, Louisiana State University School of the Coast and Environment, describes oil impacts on salt marshes.  He describes factors that determine whether the marsh will die and factors to consider when deciding what action, if any, should be taken to decontaminate marshes.  This is a must see for anyone who would like to know how to respond when asked what the oil spill will do to salt  marshes.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFc_PS9dd40
