Outreach specialists working with science consortia, funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI), reflected on their collective multi-year efforts for insights gained and lessons learned. These reflections resulted in recommendations for creating, managing, and implementing scientific outreach plans.
Last week more than 1,000 scientists, agency staff, students and others met in Houston, Texas, to continue the conversation about oil spill science at the 2015 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystems conference.
All the world’s a stage – literally – as oceanic, atmospheric, and geologic conditions and events come to life on a “revolving” globe.
Ten undergraduate students from Louisiana spent their summer conducting research with expert scientists who are actively pursuing advanced understanding of dispersants for improved oil-spill response.
