Scientists at the Hamburg University of Technology conducted high-pressure biodegradation experiments simulating conditions at the Deepwater Horizon site.
After the Deepwater Horizon incident, scientists faced the daunting task of locating deep-sea coral communities on the Gulf seafloor and assessing their condition.
No one can change history, but we can learn from it. That’s what CWC scientists are doing as they study the heavily-oiled Louisiana coastal marshes affected by the Deepwater Horizon spill.
Louisiana State University scientists simulated Deepwater Horizon oiling scenarios with a dominant Mississippi River Delta marsh reed and analyzed its reaction to oil exposure.
Scientists widened their study scope of deep-sea coral communities after finding oil-impacted coral near the Deepwater Horizon site.
Louisiana State University scientists assessed wetland soils for changes in oil compound levels before and after oil from the Deepwater Horizon blowout reached Louisiana marshes.
U.S. and Swiss chemists used comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography (GCxGC) to more accurately understand oil fate from the Deepwater Horizon spill.
Going after a literal “deeper understanding,” researchers are currently making multiple trips to the blowout site 5,000 feet below water surface.
A University of Georgia marine scientist will lead a research expedition back to the site of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon blowout in the Gulf of Mexico to examine the seafloor and assess the long-term effects of the 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.
