Help Us Deliver Science-Based Climate Services — Please Take Our New Survey

Responses will help us understand the needs and perspectives of users to help enhance understanding of climate impacts on decisions and actions

GCOOS is working to establish a framework for Coastal Climate Services to aid in the delivery of science-based, usable climate services for Gulf of Mexico States.

The survey seeks input that will help us understand the needs and perspectives of end-users and support plans and the implementation of measures to enhance coastal community resilience and minimize risks in the face of climate variability. Advancing this whole-of-government endeavor will also foster socio-economic growth within the Gulf of Mexico region.

  • DEADLINE EXTENDED: Responses respectfully requested by Nov. 30, 2023.

This project, led by GCOOS Intern Solomon Nyameke of Rice University, supports the organization’s overarching vision of empowering individuals, communities and businesses to enhance their decision-making processes related to their lives, work, and activities along the Gulf of Mexico. It will also position GCOOS strategically in the future to ensure fair and inclusive access to reliable, science-based, actionable climate information that will aid communities within the Gulf of Mexico states, including local, tribal, and territorial entities.


Climate Services: The American Meteorology Society (AMS) defines climate services as scientifically based information and products that enhance users’ knowledge and understanding of the impacts of climate on their decisions and actions. These services are made most effective through collaboration between providers and users.

Framework: Supporting structure around which something can be built; a system of rules, ideas, or beliefs that are used to plan or decide something.
