Oceanographic controls of hydrocarbon degradation in the Gulf of Mexico
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2018-04-05)
The risk of an oil spill accident is increasing in pristine regions of the world’s oceans due to the development and transport of crude oil resources. The ability to predict the trajectory of spilled oil is critical for ...
Biodegradation of Macondo oil by aerobic hydrocarbon-degrading bacteria in the water column and deepsea sediments of the northern Gulf of Mexico
(Georgia Institute of Technology, 2014-11-25)
Previous studies have come to contrasting conclusions regarding nutrient limitation of hydrocarbon biodegradation in the Gulf of Mexico, and rate measurements are needed to support oil plume modeling. Thus, this study ...
