Science experts gather to discuss emerging research, education, and public policy at Ocean Sciences Meeting

Kevin Speer

February 2012 - Deep-C scientists were among more than 4,000 who gathered in Salt Lake City, Utah from February 19–24, 2012 for the 2012 Ocean Sciences Meeting. The meeting offered a venue for scientific exchange across broad marine science disciplines, including physical, biological, chemical and geological oceanography.

This year’s Ocean Sciences Meeting included a number of presentations focused on the Gulf of Mexico and 2010 blowout of the Macondo reservoir beneath the Deepwater Horizon drilling rig, which resulted in the world’s largest accidental release of hydrocarbons into the ocean in recorded history. And Deep-C researchers hosted a variety sessions, posters and information sharing opportunities during the five-day conference.

Dr.Christopher Reddy was a featured presenter. His session “How Did We Do?:  Academia’s Contributions to the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill”offered an assessment of the response and contributions academic scientists made in the days and months following the Deepwater Horizon disaster. Dr. Reddy is a senior scientist in the Department of Marine Chemistry and Geochemistry and Director of the Coastal Ocean Institute at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. 

Other presentations given by Deep-C researchers on the Deepwater Horizon oil spill and other topics related to research activities in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico were:


Deep-C was a four-year, interdisciplinary study of deep sea to coast connectivity in the northeastern Gulf of Mexico.Deep-C is no longer an active research project.  The information on this website is for historical reference purposes only.
