The University of Miami (UM) Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science  has launched a new “Oil Spill” web page designed to share the science being conducted at the Rosenstiel School that is relevant to the issues emerging from the incident on the Deepwater Horizon oil platform. Designed for use by teachers, students and general audiences, the site focuses on the ocean environment.  Since the earliest days of the oil spill, researchers from disciplines across UM have been involved in monitoring the Gulf of Mexico and helping to prepare for the long-term consequences of this ecological disaster.

This educational site is in line with the School’s educational mission and brings together some of the relevant, primary research taking place at UM, as well as links to valuable information resources regarding the oil spill. It features a Timeline and Satellite Images provided by UM’s Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing (CSTARS), as well as sections on 3D Ocean Modeling and Prediction, and Ocean Observations. The newest section on Impacts is beginning to be populated with information from UM’s Center for Oceans and Human Health, as well as information on Corals and Fisheries in the region. A comprehensive list of Experts with contact information is included on the site, along with a link to the statewide Oil Spill Academic Task Force and a list of additional resources on the spill.
