It’s About Florida: Scientists talk BP Oil Spill Two Years Later

Two years after the massive Oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, Scientists are still trying to piece together what happened to the thousands of gallons of crude oil that kept gushing daily into the ocean. Deep-C Scientists were among the many who worked to determine how much oil was being discharged into the environment. Recently many of those scientists gathered in Tallahassee to discuss their long-term study of the effects of the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill. We’ve gathered them all in our studio for an update.
