Research and Resources

During the summer of 2011, the group will participate on two research expeditions to the Gulf of Mexico to further explore the distribution and fate of oil in the deepwater sediments and to monitor the activity water column and benthic microorganisms.  These expeditions will provide another time point in the extensive time series data set we have accumulated pre- and post- Macondo Blowout. Additionally, links to and PDFs of scientific papers pertaining to oil and gas degradation in the marine environment; information on various oil spills throughout the world and in US waters; links to websites of organizations and agencies with information pertaining to the Gulf of Mexico, various oil spills, and oil and gas degradation in the marine environment; etc., will be posted on a new research and resources page.  Some papers are already posted there.
