The Center for the Integrated Modeling and Analysis of the Gulf Ecosystem

A tale of two Gulf spills: A research consortium of 19 institutions from 5 countries studying the impacts of oil spills on the Gulf of Mexico.

Deepwater Horizon Hindcast Model

Coupled Near- and Far-field Components - Dr. Scott Socolofsky & Dr. Claire Paris - Texas A&M University & University of Miami

Compiling surface distributions, sediment contamination, droplet size distribution, and ocean circulation creates a 4-dimensional visualization of the Deepwater Horizon spill. Outputs of the model include estimate subsurface distribution, PAH concentrations in water and sediments, and mass balance. Incorporates biodegradation, droplet dynamics, MOSSFA formation, icthyoplankton impacts, and Lagrangian dynamics from other C-IMAGE and GoMRI research projects.

Podcasts from The Loop

The Loop is a series of podcasts which take an in depth look at C-IMAGE research. Partnering with Mind Open Media reporters Ari Daniel Shapiro and David Levin, our researchers share the importance of their studies and how they help our understanding of oil spills. David and Ari have produced eight podcasts and have more in the queue. The podcasts are linked below. Plug in and learn about our research!
