Birds, crickets, ants, and other insects that live in Louisiana wetlands are helping researchers determine impacts to marsh life from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Scientists studying oil-contaminated surface waters near the well-head site immediately after the Deepwater Horizon incident published their findings in the July 2012 edition of Environmental Research Letters
Biologists studying the impacts of oil on marine species living in coastal Alabama salt marshes published their results in the March 2013 edition of the Public Library of Science (PLoS ONE)
Technology plays a key role in oil-spill studies and GoMRI consortia researchers are involving students in the nuts and bolts (literally) of science, turning abstract concepts into real-word applications.
The self-powered, wind-propelled, autonomously-controlled vessel advances the way that scientists gather and transmit oceanic and atmospheric data.
Scientists studying dispersants and related chemical compounds recently published their findings.
The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) is pleased to announce the development of the GoMRI Request for Proposals for 2015-2017 GoMRI Research Consortia.
When the Deepwater Horizon disaster leaked an estimated 4.9 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico, many researchers feared that coastal ecosystems would never be the same.
Scientists used a mathematical approach to uncover path-defining “structures” beneath Gulf waters that governed the movement of oil following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
