Oil Spill Research
A six-week scientific cruise through the Gulf of Mexico took off at the beginning of August.
The scientists aboard the R/V Weatherbird II are studying how wildlife and portions of the Gulf were impacted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and a similar disaster in 1979. On University Beat on WUSF 89.7, we go aboard the ship with international and USF College of Marine Science researchers to talk about what they’re finding.
