The California Oil Spill Study and Evaluation Program (COSSEP) provides a mechanism for investigating, evaluating, and improving applied Oil Spill Prevention and Response (OSPR) programs, best achievable technologies, and our knowledge of the adverse effects of oil spills in the marine environment. The goals of COSSEP are authorized in the Government Code § 8670.12. The program also supports scientific and technical studies that will enhance oiled wildlife rehabilitation and the department’s natural resource damage assessments. The COSSEP program is not currently accepting proposals, please check back for updates.
