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.

Last week at the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference, two of our C-IMAGE students were selected to receive the Admiral James D. Watkins Award. The James D. Watkins Award is presented only when the highest standard of merit has been proven and recognizes those who have distinguished themselves as…
On July 29th, researchers from the Center for Integrated Modeling and Analysis of the Gulf Ecosystem (C-IMAGE) will be setting off on a cruise to collect sediment and water samples in areas affected by the IXTOC-I spill. Samples have not been collected for this purpose in over three decades. The IXTOC-I blowout occurred…
Tuxpan, MX It’s well after midnight aboard the Mexican research vessel Justo Sierra, but an international team of scientists are busy securing marine water and mud samples brought aboard the ship off the coast of Campeche. Digging 35 years into the past, marine researchers are looking to compare environmental impacts of the IXTOC-I…
Last year we had the pleasure of hosting Hal and Marilyn Weiner from Screensope to gather content for the upcoming documentary. Screenscope is a film production company is developing “Dispatches From the Gulf” to help tell the story about the scientists involved and their research to improve society’s ability to understand, respond to,…
The C-IMAGE consortium was one of 12 consortia selected for funding in 2015-207. Congratulations to us all! Before we begin the process of moving it through execution, I would like to introduce our five new partners.

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!
