Adam Domanski and his co-authors published an article in Environmental Management that proposes a new approach for estimating natural resource damages from ecological injuries, such as those caused by oil spills and other releases of hazardous substances. The habitat-based resource equivalency method (HaBREM) is a tool that can be used by natural resource trustees (e.g., the federal government, states, or tribes) to determine the appropriate amount and type of compensatory environmental restoration required under statutes including the Oil Pollution Act and the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA).
