A group of institutions led by the University of Texas’ Marine Sciences Institute has been awarded a grant to research how oil spills disperse in the Gulf of Mexico.
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.
Grant will support research to understand how oil spills disperse in the Gulf of Mexico, and how the oil affects the ecology of the Gulf
USF’s College of Marine Science announced today it’s getting another $11 million to do research on the effects of the spill on the ecology of the Gulf. Much of the research will focus on the effects of dispersants used to keep the oil off Gulf beaches.
