Scientists document how geology, biology worked together after oil disaster When scientist David Valentine and colleagues published results of a study in early 2011 reporting that bacterial blooms had consumed almost all the deepwater methane plumes after the 2010 Gulf of Mexico Deepwater Horizon oil spill, some were skeptical. How, they asked the University of California at Santa Barbara (UCSB) geochemist, could almost all the gas emitted disappear? In new results published this...

UC Santa Barbara researchers forecast where and when oil would wash ashore in the Gulf of Mexico Prompted by the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, a UC Santa Barbara scientist has come up with a new way of predicting how contaminants like oil will spread. He was able to forecast several days in advance that oil from that spill would wash ashore in particular parts of the Gulf of Mexico. "We predicted where the oil was going to go," says Igor Mezic, a professor of mechanical engineering at UC Santa...
