Non-mechanical Response Gap Estimate for Two Operating Areas of Prince William Sound – 2008

The 'response gap' is the window between the upper limits of the response system (in terms of environmental conditions) and the conditions at which Hinchinbrook Entrance is closed to laden tankers.

Nuka Research and Planning Group, LLC (Nuka Research) developed a methodology to estimate the response gap by comparing response limits for dispersant and in-situ burning tactics to environmental conditions data from 2000-2005.
