Maria Vozzo’s strong interest in Deepwater Horizon research led her from North Carolina to Louisiana to study the oil’s effects on local oysters.
High-speed cameras and UV-sensitive materials are helping advance understanding of bubbles — which could mean big things for nanoparticles.
Amitesh Saha is on a mission to find safer alternatives to dispersants currently being used in oil spill cleanup.
Researchers have discovered a new way to track the presence of oil in water even after visible slicks have vanished, a tool that could help give scientists a better idea of how oil spills impact the environment.
The 2015 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference is soliciting abstracts designed to share the latest research findings and contribute to dialogue on research implications, applications, synthesis and future direction.
A team of scientists studying the cause of skin lesions found on fish in the Gulf of Mexico in 2011 and 2012 have been unable to rule out toxic chemicals contained in oil released during the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill as their cause, according to a peer reviewed study released Monday (Aug. 4).
Scientists used models, lab experiments, and observations from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill to evaluate the importance of variables in oil transport and fate models, particularly those influencing underwater plume development.
A new discovery of two additional coral communities showing signs of damage from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill expands the impact footprint of the 2010 spill in the Gulf of Mexico. The discovery was made by a team led by Charles Fisher, professor of biology at Penn State University.
