The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative Research Board received 72 preliminary proposals for the 2015 – 2017 Research Consortia solicitation.
Scientists funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) played a major role in an International Symposium on Deep-sea Oil Spill and Offshore Oil-Gas Exploitation held in Qingdao, China on October 28 to 29, 2013.
Scientists confirmed that methane-derived carbon, likely from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill entered the food web via small particles through a pathway known as methanotrophy.
Researchers from Nova Southeastern University’s Oceanographic Center (OC) recently participated in a three-week field campaign in the Gulf of Mexico that centered on the fate of oil that is released into the environment.
Researchers have known that pollutant exposure alters the ability of ecological systems to degrade those pollutants upon encountering them again.
