dc.description.abstractMarine biofouling is the accumulation of biological organisms on any submerged surface. Biofouling on ship hulls leads to added roughness and drag, increased fuel consumption, and higher levels of greenhouse gas emissions in order to meet range and speed demands. In addition, biofouling may lead to the introduction of invasive species, a major concern in New York’s Great Lakes. Antifouling hull coatings that discourage settlement and fouling-release coatings that minimize adhesion of fouling organisms are two approaches to combat biofouling.
