The Texas General Land Office has been funding oil spill related research and development projects since 1991, funding cutting edge research that aims at better preparing the oil spill response community for real and potential releases into the environment. 

This research is carried out by State of Texas institutions of higher education which most often will culminate into peer reviewed white papers, scientific journal articles or presentations at scientific and oil spill related conferences.

These research topics include work in dispersants, resources at risk, mitigation and protection, bioremediation, in-situ burning, remote sensing, spill modeling and wildlife impacts and protection strategies, just to name a few. 

The following R&D publications are associated with GLO funded projects and have been submitted into our office for distribution.
