The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) is wrapping up the 2015 Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference in Houston, Texas today.
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.
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.
The conference sponsors share a goal to improve society’s ability to understand the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem, which includes humans, to ensure its long-term environmental health.
