GoMRI Synthesis & Legacy
The overarching goal of the GoMRI’s Synthesis effort was to document and exploit scientific achievements and advances, with the idea that synthesis would lead to new understanding and improved practices. This synthesis effort was driven by the best available science, and included knowledge exchange with the user community, including oil spill responders, NGOs, restoration efforts, and other stakeholders, and explored the transferability of knowledge to other geographic locations and scenarios.
GoMRI Synthesis consisted of the convergence of two parallel efforts – the “top down” was INITIATED by the Research Board – but was DRIVEN by the science COMMUNITY. The “bottom up” was led and organized by the GoMRI Research Consortia, Individual Investigator teams, and the extensive network of experts each had established. Through a series of workshops and subsequent publications, special issues, and presentations, GoMRI sought to answer the five key questions across each of eight identified Core Areas at the conclusion of the initiative.
5 Key Questions
- What was the state of the science (“baseline”) before Deepwater Horizon?
- What have we learned? (Critical assessment)
- What major gaps in knowledge still exist?
- How can we best apply what we have learned? (What will be the impact – how do we make a difference?)
- Where do we go from here?
8 Core Areas
Core Area 1 – Plume & Circulation Observations & Modeling
Core Area 2 – Fate of Oil & Weathering: Biological & Physical-Chemical Degradation
Core Area 3 – Ecological/Ecosystem Impacts
Core Area 4 – Human Health and Socioeconomic Impacts
Core Area 5 – Ecosystem Services, Human Health and Socioeconomic Impacts
Core Area 6 – Microbiology, Metagenomics & Bioinformatics
Core Area 7 – Integrated/Linked Modeling System
Core Area 8 – Knowledge Exchange with User Communities: Lessons Learned and Operational Advice
