It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Professor Ben Flower, a faculty member at the University of South Florida’s College of Marine Science, passed away Sunday morning at Bayfront Hospital in Saint Petersburg, FL.
Understanding oceanic flows in the Gulf of Mexico could be a game changer for emergency responders the next time there is an oil spill. Responders need quick, reliable information to figure out where oil goes and how fast it gets there. Yet advancement in predictive accuracy requires ambitious and innovative science.
The 2010 BP oil spill accelerated the loss of Louisiana’s delicate marshlands, which were already rapidly disappearing before the largest oil spill in U.S. history, a new study reports.
Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference: January 21-23, 2013 (3 full days) – New Orleans Marriott Hotel, 555 Canal Street, New Orleans, Louisiana
Salt marshes are one of the most vulnerable coastal environments in the Gulf of Mexico.
In the days and months following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, all eyes were fixed on images of where the oil was going and what it was impacting.
A floating mass of tangled seaweed might not look inviting, but for marine life in open Gulf waters it is critical for survival.
With buckets and shovels in hand, scientists have collected and are analyzing oil found in the sediments of Gulf coast beaches.
