USFCMS Awarded $20.2M for Gulf Oil Spill Research

ST. PETERSBURG - The University of South Florida’s College of Marine Science has been awarded a $20.2 million grant by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative to continue leading studies of the impact of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill, one of the nation’s largest environmental disasters.

The grant will support the efforts over the next three years by professors, post-doctoral scholars and students at 19 collaborating institutions, in five countries including Mexico, the Netherlands, Germany and Canada. The effort, dubbed C-IMAGE consortium was originally established at USF in 2012 to conduct studies on the oil spill after the well blowout was capped.
