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.

Years after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, scientists around the Gulf of Mexico are still working to understand the effects that it had on the area’s ecosystem. These efforts include investigations zeroing in on impacts to the Gulf’s fish species. One such study, led by the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, Florida, is…
SAVE THE DATE! The Oil Spill Outreach Team would like to inform you of three workshops/science seminars that we will be hosting in the next couple of months. Please mark your calendars and join us!

Researchers from the Center for Integrated Modeling and Analysis of the Gulf Ecosystem (C-IMAGE) are setting off on a cruise to collect sediment and water samples in areas affected by the IXTOC-I spill. The cruise marks the first time since these studies have been performed in over three decades. The IXTOC-I blowout occurred…
Our Ecotoxicology Study is a collaboration between MOTE Marine Laboratory, Wageningen University, University of West Florida, and USF-College of Marine Science looking at the toxicity of oil in Gulf fishes using samples collected in situ and in the exposure experiments. We are looking at the sublethal impacts of oil PAH exposure and investigating…
ST. PETERSBURG, FL The University of South Florida’s College of Marine Science today announced a formal partnership with Agilent Technologies and the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) to refresh analytical chemistry equipment for studying oil spills. Funded by GoMRI and Agilent’s Research Support Program, this partnership will allow access to cutting edge…

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!
