Identifying Limiting Nutrients in Galveston Bay Seagrass Communities
Seagrasses, an ecologically important group of marine plants, have declined in worldwide areal extent by 29% since 1879, in part due to nutrient enrichment. To reduce this decline, it is important to discover the limiting ...

Offshore natural gas hydrate harvesting system
The purpose of this project is to design a system that will allow for production of methane gas from a deep-sea Methane Hydrate Harvester. A satellite host system was chosen in a feasibility report, released in September ...
Genotypic diversity of Sabellid worms from carbon dioxide vents
Marine carbon dioxide vents are very common in the Mediterranean Sea, especially around Italy and Greece where they typically eject volcanic fluids containing up to 1-2% hydrogen sulfide. Natural CO2 venting sites have ...
Modular carbon fiber propeller
Utilization of Composite Materials with Marine Applications
Isolation and comparison of exopolymeric substances (EPS) from five dominant phytoplankton species in the Gulf of Mexico
Interest in EPS has recently been increasing as they have a great impact on many of geochemical processes, including prediction of POC flux, trace element, nanoparticle, and radionuclide scavenging, and tracing different ...
Polychaete feeding behavior and geographical distribution in the Gulf of Mexico
Polychaete annelids contribute greatly to macrofaunal species diversity in dynamic deep-sea ecosystems. The aim of our study was to assess the functional composition of deep-sea polychaete assemblages in the Gulf of Mexico. ...
Mercury contamination in Gulf of Mexico fish
Mercury is a toxic, naturally occurring element that is hazardous to humans at high concentrations. Natural sources include degassing of the earth and volcanic activities; however human-related activities contributing to ...
Pelton wheel turbine generator
The purpose of this project is to design and construct an efficient pelton wheel turbine generator. The idea of our project came from the topic of hydropower and the generation of renewable energy. This particular turbine ...
