Ithaca, NY, September 29, 2017 - How does crude oil move through the Great Lakes Basin? New York Sea Grant was among the nearly 130 federal, state and provincial governments; industry; NGOs; and academic entities participating in the 2017 Crude Move Symposium addressing the economics, risks and hazards of crude oil transport through such important waters as the Great Lakes and St. Lawrence River system and the Gulf of Mexico. The 39-page proceedings and video recordings of the symposium are now available online at www.glc.org/work/oil-transportation/publications.

The symposium was sponsored by a partnership of the Great Lakes Commission, the Great Lakes Sea Grant Network, the Gulf of Mexico Sea Grant Oil Spill Science Outreach Program, the International Joint Commission, the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative, and the Joyce Foundation.
