Recent grants for oil-spill related research

| 11/1/2010

» The Northern Gulf Institute awarded $500,000 to a group of Florida State University oceanographers, meteorologists and marine biologists and ecologists, who will conduct a comprehensive study of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill's impact on coastal and ocean marine ecosystems in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico.

» The National Science Foundation gave $200,000 to FSU's National High Magnetic Field Laboratory for analysis of petroleum samples from the Gulf.
