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.
Scientists at Florida State University are examining the mechanics behind oil transport, including changes to Sea Surface Temperature (SST) and the roughness of surface water that an oil slick could affect.

Oil from the 2010 Deepwater Horizon spill acted as a catalyst for plankton and other surface materials to clump together and fall to the sea floor in a massive sedimentation event that researchers are calling a “dirty blizzard.”
Missing oil from the Deepwater Horizon spill may have ended up at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. The Deepwater Horizon spill in 2010 spewed more than 600 million litres of oil into the Gulf of Mexico.
Scientists studying the impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on the food web published their recent findings.

Florida’s universities have received $20 million to study the long-term effects of last year’s BP Gulf Coast oil spill disaster.
University of West Florida researchers will participate in two major studies on the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill on the Gulf of Mexico’s ecosystem.
The nation will be looking to Florida State University and its expertise in the marine sciences as it studies the long-term after effects and changes in the Gulf of Mexico following last year’s Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
