A panel of experts will offer critical suggestions on how post-Gulf of Mexico oil catastrophe research funds should be spent.
The Cain Department of Chemical Engineering at Louisiana State University is seeking to fill new tenure-track, assistant-professor positions in the broad research areas of “Energy” and the “Environment,” with a preferred start date of Fall 2015.
Scientists measured the speed of small, short-lived Gulf surface currents using position data from nearly 300 drifters to determine surface current impact on the dispersion of ocean contaminants.
The “ivory tower” mindset that distances academia from everyday life was nowhere to be found at the inaugural Deep-C Student Research Symposium.
What gets kids of all ages more excited than a day of hard-hitting SEC football? Robots!
Visitors to the Smithsonian Ocean Portal now have the opportunity to learn more about oil spills like the Deepwater Horizon.
Scientists have simulated a variety of deep-sea oil spill conditions in miniature via a pair of mesocosms, an approach that bridges traditional laboratory and in situ observations.
Scientists using a high-speed camera to observe bubbles bursting have gained new insight into the hydrodynamics of complex fluids.
Nathan Laxague studies a small-scale subject matter that has potentially large-scale applications. Capillary waves – or ripples – on the ocean surface can indicate the presence of a film or oil slick on the water’s surface, making them “an important link in the chain of oil spill response.”
