An international team of researchers has completed a seven-year baseline study of fish populations in the Gulf of Mexico in the aftermath of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
The recent TechSurge: Advancing Oil Spill Research brought together the GoMRI and Marine Technology Society (MTS) communities to share research results and discuss how they might work together to better prepare for future oil spills.
Researchers at the University of South Florida have landed a $20.2 million grant to continue studying the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.
Florida has received $34.3 million in conservation grants from a settlement over the 2010 Gulf of Mexico oil spill.
Scientists half a world away from the Deepwater Horizon site are getting the first close glimpse of how oil likely behaved deep underwater during the spill
Scientists from the University of South Florida used circulation models to conduct a tracer simulation and compared output patterns with ecological analyses to determine the possibility that hydrocarbons from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill could have moved onto the West Florida Shelf
Scientists conducting research to understand the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill are increasingly using sights and sounds to share their explorations and discoveries.
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.”
It is with deep sadness that we share the news that Professor Ben Flower, a faculty member at the University of South Florida’s College of Marine Science, passed away Sunday morning at Bayfront Hospital in Saint Petersburg, FL.
Associate professor of chemical engineering Norma Alcantar is filing for an international patent for a cactus mucilage as an oil dispersant.
