Microbial Communities – Dr. Joel Kostka – Georgia Institute of Technology

The impact of microbial degradation is studied through several projects within task 3: the affect of dispersants on microbial communities at high-pressure and oceanographic controls, anaerobic hydrocarbon degradation, and mechanisms used for removing contaminating oil.

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!
