Oil Spill Anniversary
Five years ago this week, the largest accidental oil spill ever took place in the Gulf of Mexico. USF College of Marine Science researchers were among the first responders to the Deepwater Horizon disaster – and they’ve continued looking at the spill’s long-term effects on the environment ever since. We’ll hear from some of those scientists on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
