  • A team of USM researchers is taking the lead to advance the scientific understanding of the effects of the re-opening of Bonnet Carré Spillway on the Mississippi Sound.

    Researchers from our School of Ocean Science and Engineering have begun a thorough examination of the spillway’s effects on the Mississippi Sound. These experts will be using various technologies and projects to gather data on biological resources such as oysters and crabs, monitor water quality components, use remote sensing and circulation modeling, and survey the impacts to seagrass, artificial reefs and channels.

  • A recent discovery in Alabama shows evidence that a team of researchers from USM discovered the sunken Clotilda, America’s last slave ship, more than a year ago.

    Ben Raines, a writer and documentarian, believed he had located the whereabouts of the Clotilda deep in the waters south of Mobile and wanted to know for sure. He contacted Dr. Monty Graham, the director of the USM School of Ocean Science and Engineering, to assist in the quest.

    In April 2018, USM faculty and students conducted a hydrographic survey of the Mobile River on the east side of 12 Mile Island. After intensive research including X-ray fluorescence tests and multiple dive teams, experts have agreed that the ship that was discovered is the Clotilda.

  • USM doctoral student, Witold Fuchs, is collaborating with NASA on the design of a carbon fiber composite that could potentially be used as a hull for spaceships and satellites.

    If this material successfully withstands the atmospheric rigors of outer space, it could be used as a lighter alternative to metal hulls, making it less costly to launch and maintain spaceships in the future. If all goes as planned, the new material will be launched into space within the next two weeks for testing aboard the International Space Station.
