Project Description

The Deepwater Horizon (DWH, 2010) and Ixtoc-I (1979-1980) oil spills, separated by thirty years and over 600 nautical miles in the Gulf of Mexico, are the two largest submarine oil well blowouts in global history. Through an integrated series of field-based, laboratory and modeling studies, previous C-IMAGE research has sought to advance understanding of the fundamental processes and mechanisms involved in marine blowouts and their environmental consequences, ensuring that society is better-prepared to mitigate future events. This proposal focuses on three priorities: continuing promising research threads that have emerged from previous C-IMAGE-initiated research; synthesizing research findings commissioned by GoMRI, government agencies, and other entities; and integrating information across fundamental research domains including field-based sampling, laboratory experimentation and modeling.
