Beach lovers and tourism officials have a burning desire for every trace — every tiny tar ball, tar mat or oil-covered seashell — of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster to vanish from our otherwise pristine beaches.
Scientists from the University of South Florida used circulation models to conduct a tracer simulation and compared output patterns with ecological analyses to determine the possibility that hydrocarbons from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill could have moved onto the West Florida Shelf
Researchers have confirmed that methane-derived carbon has entered the Gulf’s food web through tiny organic particles floating in the Gulf.
A team of scientists led by University of Georgia marine biologist Samantha Joye will spend most of April using the deepsea submarine Alvin to study the mile-deep seafloor near the site of BP’s ill-fated Macondo well
GoMRI congratulates Karen Malone, of the Hamburg University of Technology, and Nicholas Geitner, of Clemson University
A team of scientists from the University of Texas Marine Science Institute, including students from California and China, assessed the effects of crude oil exposure on adult and larval gelatinous zooplankton species – some commonly referred to as jellyfish.
The four Sea Grant College Programs of the Gulf of Mexico are pleased to release this announcement for four non-tenured track, 12-month, two-year limited term, grant funded positions related to a new oil spill science outreach program.
This field expedition is part of a new education initiative called the Gulf Oil Observers (GOO), which trains volunteers to be effective citizen scientists. GOO mentors are educators and scientists associated with the Deep-C Consortium research project
