The seawater samples were collected from Pensacola Beach, FL in June and August, 2016. The seawater was incubated with low concentration of oil (2ppm) with or without dispersant. Oil analysis and sequencing data were generated.
The data were collected in order to assess the effect of dispersant application during oil spills.
