The GoMRI homepage features a publication from Wageningen University analyzing the effect of dispersants on oil spills.

The NET effect of dispersants—a critical review of testing and modelling of surface oil dispersion was published in Marine Pollution Bulletin in 2015 and reviews the impact of dispersants by analyzing other studied spills. The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative features the publication on their website.

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!
