A free public showing of the documentary and presentations by Dr. Gary Checchine and Dr. Natalia Sidorovskaia to be held at Sci-Port as the five-year anniversary of Deepwater Horizon oil spill approaches.
The College of Letters and Sciences on the Polytechnic campus of Arizona State University invite applications for a Postdoctoral Research Associate position to do research and analysis on a new Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GomRI) ecological grant.
Scientists analyzed literature on surface oil dispersion processes to improve how (natural and chemical) dispersion could be quantified in oil spill prediction models.
Laura Timm examines connections among shellfish ecology and evolution to help scientists understand how the Deepwater Horizon oil spill affected certain Gulf of Mexico species: “My work focuses on establishing pre-spill baselines and comparing them to samples taken 3-7 years after the oil spill, providing a timeline of crustacean recovery.”
Scientists conducted experiments to assess oil exposure effects on Ruppa maritima, a common underwater plant species in Gulf of Mexico estuaries.
As marsh plants recover from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in Louisiana, so have the tiny plants and animals living in the soil, according to a new study published in Marine Ecology Progress Series.
The Smithsonian Ocean Portal posted a blog that describes the needs and challenges of sharing scientific data, especially unique data collected after a disaster such as the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Scientists studied the relationship between the resiliency of Louisiana salt marsh plants, invertebrates, and microbes in heavily-oiled sediment after the Deepwater Horizon spill.
As the world’s only museum dedicated to the Gulf of Mexico, it is fitting that GulfQuest/National Maritime Museum of the Gulf of Mexico will host the state of Alabama premiere of Dispatches From the Gulf, a new documentary that follows teams of scientists as they investigate the Deepwater Horizon oil spill’s effect on the world’s ninth largest body of water.
