The September 2014 issue of BioScience features seven peer-reviewed articles authored by GoMRI-funded scientists and engineers discussing key phenomena occurring at the time of the Macondo blowout.
Using high-resolution DNA sequencing of specific marker genes to analyze microbial community composition, scientists tracked the diversity and abundance of water-column bacteria before and after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Florida scientists analyzed over 7,400 Gulf of Mexico fish representing 103 species for skin lesions after fishermen reported diseased fish after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Scientists from Haverford College and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution investigated the presence of dispersants following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
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.
