The Gulf Integrated Spill Research Consortium is currently conducting research aboard the E/V Nautilus. Dr. Scott Socolofsky is conducting an experiment to observe bubbles eminating from seeps and how they are influencec by current shear.
At Texas A&M University, a new interactive exhibit "Offshore Drilling: The Promise of Discovery" opened to the public in March and features, among many examples of equipment and history from the industry, the oil spill research of the Gulf of Mexico Integrated Spill Response (GISR) consortium, a Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) funded project.
The Gulf Integrated Spill Research Consortium (GISR) members have been studying the science of the Gulf of Mexico for years. Along the way we have amassed a substanial knowledge base that make us leaders in the science of the Gulf of Mexico. We have recently published several papers with the support of the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GOMRI) funding.
