Georgia (Jun 7, 2010)

Other Georgia colleges have professors, researchers and students working on various aspects of the oil spill disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
  • Kennesaw State University biology professor Troy Mutchler will return to the Gulf Islands National Seashore near Pensacola on Saturday to study how pollution affects sea grass communities. He described sea grass as a "nursery" for Gulf marine life, including shrimp, scallops and crabs. His project was planned before the disaster, but he said the research will provide baseline data to help assess the oil spill damage.
  • University of Georgia professor Samantha Joye and a team of researchers from UGA and other universities are researching underwater oil plumes in the Gulf.  She has reported that huge plumes of oil remain deep beneath the surface. Joye, a professor in the department of marine sciences, is blogging about her work and answering questions here: gulfblog.uga.edu.
