Meet Nancy Rabalais: Focusing on Coastal Ecosystems
Much of the Deepwater Horizon oil that came ashore landed in the Louisiana marshes and beaches. Dr. Nancy Rabalais (LUMCON) and her team are focusing their research on the coastal ecosystems – particularly the blue crab populations and how they are recovering.
PODCAST OF THE WEEK
GulfCast: Sharks, Sharks, and More Sharks!
Since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Dr. Dean Grubbs and his team of oceanographers have conducted a series of intense 24/7 research cruises in order to generate the biggest survey of deepwater sharks ever in the Gulf of Mexico. The deep-sea species of the Gulf have shown signs of recovery, but there are still issues. And every cruise reveals something new.

World Water Day 2017
This year’s World Water Day focused on wastewater and how our water-stressed planet can reuse it. Globally, the vast majority of all wastewater from homes, cities, industry and agriculture flows back into nature without being treated or reused, polluting the environment, and losing valuable nutrients and other recoverable materials. The United Nations has great resources for everyday citizens to do practical things to reduce water use and minimize waste.
