Abstract : The In-Situ Burn (ISB) Gap Analysis Report summarizes the analysis of over 125 post-Deepwater Horizon recommendations related to the conduct of ISB operations. The initial set of recommendations was grouped into affinity areas (Operations, Safety, Research, and Policy) and then further divided into subcategories depending on the focus of the recommendation. The recommendations were reviewed by subject matter experts to determine which would have the most significant impacts on the efficacy and safety of ISB operations; and then to develop the final set of Gap Analysis recommendations. For each recommendation identified in the Gap Analysis, the report provides the following: * A brief summary of each of the recommendations identified for ISB from the reference documents or general literature search * The extent to which the recommendation has been addressed or implemented * How addressing these recommendations will provide more robust and safer ISB operations * A description of proposed tasks for future research efforts related to each recommendation * Whether any recommendations could utilize the burn testing capability that is available at the Joint Maritime Test Facility (JMTF) facility located in Mobile, Alabama.
