GoMRI Science Featured at the Bush Presidential Library and Museum
An interactive exhibit at the Bush Presidential Library and Museum, located at Texas A&M University, allows visitors to “Make Your Own Oil Spill.” Visitors can “spill” oil in the Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic Bight by tapping a touch-screen display, then watch the program map the dispersal of the oil based on bathymetry, currents, and winds. The visualization is part of the exhibit “Offshore Drilling: The Promise of Discovery.”
