$112M Awarded for Studying Effects of Oil Spill on Gulf of Mexico

Primary tabs

Research on the effects of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico took a major step forward with the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GRI) Research Board's announcement that eight Research Consortia are funded for the next three years. Two professors from the School of Biology, Drs. Joel Kostka and Joseph Montoya, are included in this three-year, total $112.5 million project. These teams investigate the fate of petroleum in the environment, the impacts of the spill, and the development of new tools and technology for responding to future spills and improving mitigation and restoration.
