$1.3 million to continue research in gulf - Around the Arch
June 2012 Issue
Two years after the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, UGA researchers remain at the forefront of the investigation into the incident, this time with a $1.3 million grant from the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative to study more thoroughly the ecosystem impacts of the disaster. UGA marine scientist Samantha Joye, who is the Athletic Association Professor in Arts and Sciences, and UGA colleagues Patricia Medeiros and Christof Meile will work with scientists from 13 other institutions over the next three years to develop a way for researchers and emergency responders to better predict and respond to future spills. Joye will serve as the associate science director for the project, “Ecosystem Impacts of Oil and Gas Inputs to the Gulf.” Raymond Highsmith, executive director of the University of Mississippi’s National Institute for Undersea Science and Technology, is the lead investigator.
