Scientists studying the chemical composition of weathered oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill published their recent findings.
Scientists studying the impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on the food web published their recent findings.
The natural microbial community in the water column and on the sea floor of the northern Gulf of Mexico (GOM) surprised the watching world in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill (DHOS) by quickly working to help mitigate the effects of the oil.
Science pioneers are blazing a trail to identify pathways oil and gas use to move from deep to surface waters – an entry point for pollutants to damage shorelines and become airborne.
In the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill (DHOS), the National Commission on the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and Offshore Drilling estimates that responders sprayed over 1.8 million gallons of the dispersant Corexit 9500 into the northern Gulf of Mexico (GOM).
In early October, the American Geophysical Union (AGU) elected Dr. Margaret Leinen as their next president. She begins a two-year term as president-elect in January 2013, followed by a two-year term as president.
Students, teachers, and journalists joined scientists on board research expeditions and in labs this summer and shared their experiences online.
“Highly successful” is how Chief Scientist Ian MacDonald described his recent research cruise on the RV Weatherbird II to identify natural oil seeps to use as control sites as part of a larger effort to study the effects of oil and gas in the deep sea environment.
All the world’s a stage – literally – as oceanic, atmospheric, and geologic conditions and events come to life on a “revolving” globe.
