The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative congratulates Dr. Christopher “Chris” Reddy for being honored with the 2018 American Geophysical Union’s Ambassador Award.
Responders to the Deepwater Horizon spill used large quantities of dispersant to facilitate oil biodegradation, but could a different method be safer for the environment?
Dr. Christoph Aeppli to determine how toxic spilled oil remains nearly six years after Deepwater Horizon spill
With the fifth anniversary of the spill today, everyone is asking me: Are we more prepared for the next spill? Perhaps the best answer to that question arrived a few weeks ago in a single email.
The “ivory tower” mindset that distances academia from everyday life was nowhere to be found at the inaugural Deep-C Student Research Symposium.
Biodegradation? Chromatography? While scientists toss these terms around with no problem, they can sound like a foreign language to others.
On March 22, a cargo ship collided with a barge carrying approximately 4,000 barrels of bunker fuel oil in Galveston Bay, Texas. An estimated 168,000 gallons spilled into the Houston Ship Channel, prompting officials to shut it down for cleanup. Within days scientists from two research consortia funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) were on site alongside government and industry workers, collecting baseline information to assess impacts.
In late February, a team of 25 future scientists went on a beachcombing expedition like no other.
As part of ongoing research nearly four years after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, scientists from WHOI will team up with a group of high school students in Florida to collect remnants of oil from Gulf Coast beaches this week.
