Overview

The Technical University of Hamburg at Harburg (TUHH) hosted the 1st Hamburg Symposium on Deep-Sea Oil Spills on Wednesday September 4, 2013. The conference brought together North American and European expertise to improve quick and effective response to future oil spills and minimize their environmental impact.

To kick it off, Steven Murawski have an overview of GoMRI and the C-IMAGE project to 45 attendees who represented five countries, ten European agencies, three GoMRI-funded consortia, and private technology/instrument manufacturers. "This was a fantastic opportunity to coordinate the research projects that our European partners are undertaking and to foster potential additional collaborators in the private sector. The capabilities and ongoing studies discussed at the symposium will be critical to better understanding the nature and consequences of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and in helping the offshore oil industry to avoid such incidents in the future".

C-IMAGE's international partners are from Canada, Germany, and the Netherlands with participants from a total of ten institutes.

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!
