Dispersion Research on Oil: Physics and Plankton Studies (DROPPS)
MetadataShow full item record
The DROPPS Consortium is a team of scientists studying the effects of oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico. Funded by the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative, DROPPS Researchers are examining the breakup of oil as well as the interactions of different planktonic and microbial species with oil. The information gathered from this research helps to predict the overall impact of oil spills, allowing for better protection of people and the environment.
