Science that is understandable is science that is used.
Organisers invited Dr Tamay Ozgokmen of the University of Miami to present results on ocean processes from his GLAD experiment conducted after the Deepwater Horizon incident to improve prediction models of oil transport.

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.
Satellite Company Provides Researchers With SPOT Satellite GPS Messengers(TM) to Complete an Unprecedented Oceanic Flow Study in Wake of Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill
As the Globalstar transmission shut down approaches, ending the GPS data collection phase of CARTHE’s Grand Lagrangian Deployment (GLAD), the team is still collecting data from the largest upper-ocean dispersion experiment of its kind.
Hurricanes can pose significant risks to human and environmental health. However, a scientific “silver lining” exists in the midst of Hurricane Isaac.
Hundreds of data-collecting ocean drifters are “going with the flow” in the Gulf of Mexico. Their journey can be seen in an animated video that Dr. Bruce Lipphardt, with the CARTHE project team at the University of Delaware, generates and updates regularly.
GULFPORT, Mississippi — About 300 drifters are being deployed in the Gulf of Mexico around the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill site to help scientists develop a better model for predicting how material travels in the currents.
