Southern Gulf of Mexico Marine Observations, Research and Technology: Opportunities for Gulf-Wide Synergies and Cooperation

The GCOOS Spring Webinar Series presents “Southern Gulf of Mexico Marine Observations, Research and Technology: Opportunities for Gulf-Wide Synergies and Cooperation.” During this webinar series, Mexican consortia will present their activities over the past six years in conducting basic and applied research in the Gulf of Mexico, discuss ongoing research, the scientific and technological capabilities they have in place, recent synthesis publications, and ideas for future collaboration in this large marine ecosystem.

This series builds on an effort hosted by Texas A&M University (TAMU) and the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) in 2018, when representatives of CIGOM presented the objectives and activities of their work groups. It is a collaboration among GCOOS, TAMU, SUT-US, N2N-GoM — the Network-to-Network for the Gulf of Mexico — CIGOM and CEMIE-Océano. Organizers are Jorge Brenner, Executive Director, GCOOS, TAMU and IOOS, Sharon Herzka, CIGOM and CICESE and Zenon Medina-Cetina, TAMU and N2N-GoM.

We need your input!

The GCOOS build-out plan is the roadmap that will help us arrive at our destination. We’re updating the plan and want to know: What data and observing products do you think the Gulf needs? Please take our survey before Sept. 30 to tell us what you think!
