Woods Hole Scientist to Discuss Gulf Oil Spill

  25/01/2011
Christopher Reddy, senior scientist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's Department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry, is to present "Hunting for Subsurface Oil Plumes in the Gulf of Mexico Following the Deepwater Horizon Disaster" at 4PM on Friday, 28th January in Science, Mathematics and Technology Education building 150 on the Western Washington University campus in Bellingham, WA.
 

Chris Reddy 

The Deepwater Horizon disaster is the largest marine oil spill in history. Oil plumes produced by the Deepwater Horizon explosion were as large as 10 miles long, three miles wide and 300 feet thick. Reddy will be discussing his most recent work, tracking subsurface oil plumes, following the oil spill, and the analysis of their biodegradation.

 

This presentation is made possible by the 2010 Jean Dreyfus Boissevain Lectureship grant, awarded to WWU's Department of Chemistry.

 

For more information on this presentation, contact Greg O'Neil, an assistant professor of chemistry within WWU's College of Sciences and Technology, at +1 360-650-6283 or oneilg@chem.wwu.edu.

 

The event is free. A reception will begin at 3.15PM.
