MIT Museum Soap Box: Mixing Oil and Ecosystems
November 10, 2010
While few would praise the April 20 explosion on the Deepwater Horizon oil rig as being a boon to environmental research, there is still much to be learned from this extreme tragedy. Chris Reddy, marine chemist at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution studies how oil spills affect ocean ecosystems, and what role humans have in changing the way nature deals with such events.
Come share your opinions about the long-term environmental impacts of the Gulf oil spill and the risk factors currently at work during this Soap Box event, taking place tonight from 6-7:30 p.m. at the MIT Museum. Free admission and light refreshments will be served.
