FIU: Marine scientists go deep in Gulf research

It has been six years since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill dumped 3 million barrels of oil into the Gulf of Mexico. Plants and wildlife were harmed, ecosystems were destroyed and the revenue brought in by fisheries and tourism was cut.

As part of the DEEPEND Consortium, FIU marine scientists Heather Bracken-Grissom and Kevin Boswell are working alongside more than 60 researchers from 16 institutions to understand the Gulf of Mexico and the impacts of the oil spill on the Gulf.
