Jocelyn Lockwood talks to Dr. Colwell about the latest scientific results concerning all aspects of the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem following the BP oil spill.
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.
Science pioneers are blazing a trail to identify pathways oil and gas use to move from deep to surface waters – an entry point for pollutants to damage shorelines and become airborne.
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
To solve the very big ecological and economic problems caused by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a team of researchers is thinking very small.
The origin of Cerataspis monstrosa has been a mystery as deep as the ocean waters it hails from. For nearly two centuries, researchers have tried to track down the larva that has shown up in the guts of other fish over time but found no adult counterpart. Until now.
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.
A floating mass of tangled seaweed might not look inviting, but for marine life in open Gulf waters it is critical for survival.
Why would scientists select a small marsh minnow to help them understand the impacts of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill?
