USF-Gulf Oil Research Part 2

This week's University Beat on WUSF-TV is the second of a three-part series that takes you aboard the R/V Weatherbird II with a team of oceanographers from USF's College of Marine Science on a recent trip into the Gulf that focused on the tools they use to monitor local waters to predict what direction oil from the Deepwater Horizon disaster might head if it ever reaches the Loop Current.
