Study Quantifies Influence of Data Input on Confidence in Loop Current Forecasts

(GoMRI) April 11, 2017 Researchers described in a recent study a surrogate-based technique to quantify the uncertainty in forecasting the oceanic circulation. The authors focused on the time period during the Deepwater Horizon oil spill when an extended Loop Current increased the risk of carrying the oil slick towards the eastern seaboard of the U.S. […]

Study Characterizes River Plume Mixing Processes in Coastal Waters

March 7, 2017

(GoMRI) March 7, 2017 Scientists assessed the behavior of a Florida river plume to determine how it might influence the transport and dispersion of surface oil near coastal regions. The researchers found that the near-surface measurements of dissipation at the front’s bounding edge were four orders of magnitude larger than the environment beneath. Frontal processes […]

Study Identifies Ocean Processes That Drive Surface Material Clustering

October 20, 2016

(GoMRI) October 20, 2016 Scientists analyzed Gulf of Mexico model simulations to understand the flow processes that drive clustering of buoyant material such as Sargassum, oil from seeps and spills, and debris on the ocean surface. They observed similar clustering patterns from the deep ocean and continental shelf, though the processes driving clustering differed between […]
