FL SERT NRDA

Florida SERT Natural Resource Damage Assessment

Important - please review the process directives prior to conducting sampling efforts and the Uploader Guide for instructions on submitting data to NOAA NRDA.

The web page with NRDA information is found at http://www.darrp.noaa.gov/about/index.html .  If you click on the link to the right titled "NRDA Processes" you will find more relevant info and a discussion on what is meant by "Preliminary Assessment" in NRDA terms.  Next click on link titled "OPA Guidance Documents" to learn a little about the Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (OPA90) and have access to the document titled "PREASSESSMENT PHASE, GUIDANCE DOCUMENT FOR NATURAL RESOURCES DAMAGE ASSESSMENT UNDER THE OIL POLLUTION ACT OF 1990" .  You can read it all if you like, but it's recommended to start with Attachment G (link towards the bottom), which discusses the value of baseline data and the role historic data can play.
