GoMRI in the News
- Posted on June 10, 2015The cruise will allow the scientists to collect water column and sediment samples at Macondo impacted sites, other anthropogenically impacted sites, natural hydrocarbon seeps and control sites to track Macondo impacts and compare the processes observed in Macondo-influenced areas to natural seeps and control sites.

- Posted on June 9, 2015Scientists from Haverford College examined Gulf of Mexico sediment and flocculent material (floc) associated with oil-impacted corals to study indigenous microbial communities and their oil degradation potential.
- Posted on June 4, 2015One of the most significant outcomes of the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) has been the fostering of a multi-disciplinary collaborative academic community ready to put science into practice.
- Posted on June 2, 2015The Deepwater Horizon oil spill is one of many stressors affecting wetlands ecology, and scientists are investigating impacts from natural and human-caused disturbances on marsh health and surrounding water chemistry.
- Posted on May 29, 2015GoMRI granted a Special Award of $2000 for best oil spill-related science at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair, held May 11-15 in Pittsburgh, PA.
- Posted on May 26, 2015A team of scientists from Eckerd College and University of South Florida conducted a time-series sediment study to better understand impacts from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
- Posted on May 19, 2015An exciting aspect of scientific research is unexpected discovery. While investigating impacts from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, scientists made unanticipated, yet fundamentally important, discoveries that shape our understanding of ocean science and Gulf ecosystems.
- Posted on May 12, 2015Caroline Johansen laughs when her family tells others that her research involves counting bubbles. But the bubbles she studies come from seeps at the bottom of the Gulf and contain naturally-occurring hydrocarbons that are an important part of the deep-sea ecosystem.
