Going after a literal “deeper understanding,” researchers are currently making multiple trips to the blowout site 5,000 feet below water surface.
In late February, a team of 25 future scientists went on a beachcombing expedition like no other.
Scientists half a world away from the Deepwater Horizon site are getting the first close glimpse of how oil likely behaved deep underwater during the spill
A team of researchers from Texas, Florida, and California successfully quantified the gene expression of wild Fundulus grandis, commonly known as Gulf killifish, from the northern Gulf of Mexico in assessing exposure to toxicants from the 2010 oil spill.
A team of scientists led by the University of Georgia’s Samantha Joye will spend much of April deep underwater, surveying the ocean floor around the Deepwater Horizon blowout that discharged roughly 5 million gallons of oil into the Gulf of Mexico in 2010.
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
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.
