The Coastal Waters Consortium (CWC) inaugural Art and Science Camp challenged participants, engaging both their analytical and creative talents to learn about a locally-relevant and nationally-important subject matter—oiled marsh lands.
GoMRI announces their Scholars Program to recognize the graduate students whose vital research contribute to improve understanding about the damage, response, and recovery following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
The second Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference was held in Mobile, Alabama in January 2014. As we entered the fourth year of research following the Deepwater Horizon incident, the science community was positioned to deliver integrated findings both within the scientific community and to stakeholder groups.
The Research Board of the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI), as part of the 2014 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference, convened a Forum to discuss the current understanding of dispersants and their use and application following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
GoMRI in cooperation with the NIST has launched the Hydrocarbon Inter-calibration Experiment (HIE) to address the need for advancing the importance of laboratory Quality Assurance/Quality Control (QAQC) practices and for inter-laboratory comparison and calibration for petroleum compounds.
Scientists from Texas, Delaware, and Louisiana conducted a multiyear study examining coastal waters in the Gulf of Mexico to determine if hydrocarbons from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill had changed the water column chemistry.
At Texas A&M University, a new interactive exhibit “Offshore Drilling: The Promise of Discovery” opened to the public in March and features, among many examples of equipment and history from the industry, the oil spill research of the Gulf of Mexico Integrated Spill Response (GISR) consortium, a GoMRI funded project.
Scientists from Louisiana State University evaluated bursting bubbles as a pathway for hydrocarbons to move from the sea into the air and they investigated the influence of Corexit 9500A on this process.
The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) congratulates one of their own, Howard Stone, for his election into the National Academy of Sciences (NAS).
