UNH Developers Share Honors for Oil Spill Response Tool

A Web-based oil spill response tool developed by the University of New Hampshire’s Research Computing & Instrumentation Center (RCI) has been honored as a finalist for the prestigious Samuel J. Heyman Service to America Medal. The tool – Environmental Response Management Application, or ERMA® – was developed in partnership with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and the UNH/NOAA Coastal Response Research Center and was essential in coordinating the response to the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
