Nihar Deb Adhikary uses his veterinary training and microbiology research to better understand the connections between oil fate, microbial degradation, and sediment-dwelling organisms such as shrimp and clams.
Scientists assessed subsurface hydrocarbon plume simulations to understand the role of released gases on plume behavior.
The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) is pleased to announce the release of two fisheries-related informational brochures developed by their Sea Grant partners.
A team of scientists and education staff with the Deep-C Consortium developed a user-friendly curriculum to help students make connections between the theoretical nature of science and real world applications.
An international science team assessed predictions from multiple oil spill models and found that subsea dispersants used during response to a simulated accidental blowout may reduce oil droplet size by at least one order of magnitude.
Smithsonian’s Ocean Portal is hiring a writer and web editor. This position helps to generate content for and support the Ocean Portal website, including writing stories on GoMRI science.
Jellyfish push water in and out of their bells to propel themselves forward. Researchers are investigating if and how the small underwater waves and currents created by Jellyfish movements can help break up oil spilled in marine ecosystems.
Fueled by a passion for science and endangered species, Alek designed and executed a research project that involved scientists from eight institutions, four-hundred drift cards, and over a year’s work. A substantial undertaking for any scientist, this is even more impressive because Alek is seven years old.
Dr. Rita Colwell, Research Board Chair of the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI), released a memorandum to the GoMRI science community that provides clarification and updates to the GoMRI Data Policy.
Scientists from the University of Texas at Austin assessed photooxidation and biodegradation rates on different hydrocarbon groups.
