Abstract
    After I was called upon in 2010, as director of the U.S. Geological Survey, to help with well control and flow estimation for the Deepwater Horizon (DWH) oil spill, I reviewed what had been learned from the Exxon Valdez (EV) oil spill. Although EV and DWH differed in their spill characteristics and impacts, I suspected that insight gained in the decades since EV could help guide how to best invest research funds targeted for DWH recovery and future oil spill prevention.
