Dates: 6/2/2017 - 6/27/2017
Port: Gulfport, MS
Chief Scientist(s): Dr. Joseph Montoya

This cruise takes the ECOGIG research team back to the Gulf of Mexico to continue their research assessing the ecological impacts of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon accident (Macondo oil well blowout). This cruise will allow ECOGIG researchers to collect water column and sediment samples from a number of research sites in the Gulf in order to track the impacts of human caused oil inputs and compare them to natural oil and gas seeps and control sites.
