The 2010 explosion at BP’s Deepwater Horizon drilling site and the subsequent oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico proved to be deadly and costly.
GULFPORT, Mississippi — About 300 drifters are being deployed in the Gulf of Mexico around the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill site to help scientists develop a better model for predicting how material travels in the currents.
Throughout the month of June, the Gulf of Mexico was teeming with GoMRI-funded scientists conducting oil-spill related research. For some of the research teams Tropical Storm Debbie provided additional challenges, requiring some schedule changes.

Computational scientists, physical oceanographers, and mathematicians from around the world converged on the Shelborne Hotel for the 5th Lagrangian Analysis and Prediction of Coastal and Ocean Dynamics (LAPCOD) meeting.
It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Professor Ben Flower, a faculty member at the University of South Florida’s College of Marine Science, passed away Sunday morning at Bayfront Hospital in Saint Petersburg, FL.
Understanding oceanic flows in the Gulf of Mexico could be a game changer for emergency responders the next time there is an oil spill. Responders need quick, reliable information to figure out where oil goes and how fast it gets there. Yet advancement in predictive accuracy requires ambitious and innovative science.
