The vessel was loaded with ocean drifters to track movement of surface waters around the rig and with equipment to collect time-sensitive samples of water, air and sediment.
“This is an opportunity to put science into immediate practice.” – Tamay Ozgokmen, University of Miami and director of CARTHE
Scientists conducted a post-spill analysis of computational model projections that outlined the trajectory path of Deepwater Horizon oil.
Scientists conducting research to understand the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill are increasingly using sights and sounds to share their explorations and discoveries.
Scientists conducting GoMRI-funded oil spill research take their mission regarding society seriously.
Experts from many fields of science have come together in an unprecedented manner to provide sound and trusted information.
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.
On 15 November, the US government and BP Exploration and Production Inc reached a settlement that requires the company to pay $4 billion in penalties for the 20 April 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster.
A research consortium formed after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill has deployed more than 300 water drifters near the rig’s explosion site to study surface currents in the Gulf of Mexico. Known as the Grand Lagrangian deployment, it is the largest of its kind in history.
