The Center for the Integrated Modeling and Analysis of the Gulf Ecosystem

A tale of two Gulf spills: A research consortium of 17 institutions from 5 countries studying the impacts of oil spills on the Gulf of Mexico.

Teachers Experimental Learning in Marine Science

This C-IMAGE supported STEM course is designed to provide hands-on watershed education for Florida teachers using the Tampa Bay estuary to foster experimental learning and stewardship. This extended professional development course includes:

a)  four outdoor, coastal, field-based learning experiences

b) GLOBE certifications for hydrology, atmosphere and soils, and

c) classroom follow-up to implement watershed field experiences and lessons, on or near school grounds.

Join us aboard a research vessel, paddle down a river, and explore the geology and ecology of the Tampa Bay watershed.

Course Activities

Online component - Literature review on major science concepts and Tampa Bay watershed

Outdoor field components - Fresh/salt water excursions and land based sampling

Course Details

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!
