CHARLESTON, S.C. – The Post and Courier has launched a special reporting project about the Gulf Stream, climate change and the effects various types of oil spills could have on the coast.
The newspaper’s staff conducted more than 30 interviews with scientists and used National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration software to simulate the effects of various types of oil spills in and around the Gulf Stream.
Tony Bartelme, who handles special projects for the newspaper, said its series launched this week incorporates the results of more than 1,000 simulations.
