Oil SpillDr. Robert Moorhead, Director, of Mississippi State University’s Geosystems Research Institute, was among those who recently toured the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill site courtesy of the Mississippi National Guard.

The Mississippi National Guard provides flights for scientists, researchers, public officials and the media to see the incident site and affected coast line from Grand Isle to Dauphin Island. The purpose of the flights is to help scientists, decision makers and media have a better sense of what is occurring in the Gulf of Mexico. GRI scientists and researchers have been playing an active role in conducting studies and collecting data with regards to the oil spill since its occurrence in the Gulf of Mexico back in April.
