ACER Launches Fact Sheets Series


Introducing ACER is a brief introduction to who ACER is and what they do.

The ACER fact sheet series focuses on the goals and emerging research of the consortium and will consist of 15 total fact sheets, with two fact sheets per each of the seven ACER research groups discussing their research and publications.

The first sheet,¬†Introducing ACER, shares the importance of diversity and resilience to the consortium’s research. The following fact sheets will include a research group spotlight that includes an overview of their experiments, preliminary results, key words, and pictures. These are an excellent classroom resource for science teachers on current research in the northern Gulf Coast and for those with a general interest in oil spill research.

Currently ACER has released three fact sheets: Introducing ACER, Consumer Group, and Wetlands Group. Stay tuned for more to come!

Fact sheets are available in print or online at
