Dispatches from the Gulf

Sunday, March 6, 2016 at 1:30pm

Join us on March 6 for an advanced screening of Dispatches from the Gulf, narrated by Matt Damon and part of the award-winning Journey to Planet Earth series.

The 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill occurred 1,500 meters deep in the Gulf of Mexico, releasing approximately 3.19 million barrels of oil. The event initiated an unprecedented response effort and mobilized the largest, coordinated scientific research endeavor around an ocean-related event in history – orchestrated through the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI). 

Dispatches from the Gulf tells the story of the scientists involved and their research to improve society’s ability to understand, respond to, and mitigate the impacts of petroleum pollution and related stressors of the marine and coastal ecosystems.

Free admission
