After the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, many Gulf residents wanted to know where the oil was going and how fast it would get there. Conor Smith is improving the accuracy and turn-around time of satellite-derived surface current velocity estimates for better ocean transport information.

Opportunities: Aggregation and Degradation of Dispersants and Oil by Microbial Exopolymers (ADDOMEx)
The explosion of the Deepwater Horizon (DwH) drilling rig in the northern Gulf of Mexico on April 20, 2010 released ~ 4.1 million barrels of oil over 84 days with an estimated 60% of this reaching the sea surface.
Scientists funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) are investigating the impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on the environment and public health and contributing to improved response technologies.
The Ocean Sciences Branch of the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) at Stennis Space Center (SSC), MS is seeking a postdoctoral associate in physical oceanography with research interests in the areas of ocean observations, ocean mixing, ocean fronts, and biophysical interactions.
Scientists at the Hamburg University of Technology conducted high-pressure biodegradation experiments simulating conditions at the Deepwater Horizon site.
Seaside Sparrows live and forage in coastal marshlands across the Gulf of Mexico. Scientists are studying oil’s effects on their habitat and the potential long-term impacts on sparrow populations in these areas.
