Gulf plan being revised following oil spill
Published: September 8,2010
GULF OF MEXICO — The Gulf of Mexico Research Plan is being updated to account for the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill and identify new priorities or shifts in priorities.
The Gulf of Mexico Research Plan was released in Sept. 2009 and has been used in initiatives that have funded millions of dollars of research in the region.
A survey is being used to identify potential changes in the plan. The survey is available at www.surveymonkey.com/s/researchoilspill.
People who conduct and administer research or use research results related to the coastal and marine issues in the Gulf of Mexico or the Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill are encouraged to complete the survey, which should take less than 15 minutes to complete.
The plan is coordinated by the four Gulf of Mexico Sea Grant College programs, which are Texas Sea Grant, Louisiana Sea Grant, Mississippi-Alabama Sea Grant Consortium and Florida Sea Grant. The Gulf of Mexico Research Plan is guided by the Planning and Review Council, which is made up of representatives from federal and state agencies, academia, nongovernmental organizations and others.
