High-Pressure Crisis in the Gulf
How many barrels of oil per day were spewing into the Gulf of Mexico after the BP disaster? Desperate for an accurate assessment, the federal government pulled together a high-stakes task force that included two UW Engineering professors, James Riley and Alberto Aliseda. Hear the inside story of this intensely challenging assignment and an engineering perspective on the disaster and its aftermath. Part of the UW’s 2010 Engineering Lecture Series.
