The Center for the Integrated Modeling and Analysis of the Gulf Ecosystem (CIMAGE) was a research consortium comprised of 19 institutions from 6 countries. The articles, data, and podcasts represent 10 years of research into the environmental impact two mega spills (Deep Horizon and IXTOC-I) had in the Gulf of Mexico as well as wetlands, marshes, coastal waters and the organism living in these systems.
Research was focused on six separate tasks; however, they were not studied in isolation and the interconnectedness and integration of these tasks significantly advanced oil spill research and fundamental understanding of marine blowouts and resulting ecosystem impacts.
This research was made possible by a grant from BP/The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative, Contract #SA 12-10/GoMRI-007.
