When you only have so many dollars, how do you spend them?  It’s a simple question, and the focus of new research by EOAS Professor Mariana Fuentes. She has developed a framework to help government agencies and conservation groups determine how to prioritize decisions as they work to protect endangered marine animals.

Deepwater Horizon oilspill

After 200 million gallons of crude oil spilled into the Gulf of Mexico in April 2010, the government and BP cleanup crews mysteriously had trouble locating all of it.


Now, a new study led by EOAS Professor Dr. Jeff Chanton finds that some 6 million to 10 million gallons are buried in the sediment on the Gulf floor, about 62 miles southeast of the Mississippi Delta.
