GOM-WIR will bring together approximately 150 scientists from the USA, Mexico and Cuba. This diverse group of stakeholders will:
- Identify knowledge gaps regarding marine ecosystem science from coastal communities to the deep ocean
- Prioritize relevant research needs across disciplines; and,
- Establish working relationships between potential international partners to conduct research activities addressing these issues
To learn more about attending the workshop, review the Request an Invitation page for information.
HRI is developing a comprehensive, cross-disciplinary inventory of marine ecosystem science focused on the southern Gulf of Mexico in anticipation of the Gulf of Mexico Workshop on International Research. The goal of this inventory, developed in conjunction with Mexican and Cuban scientists, is to provide information about the current state of the science in the southern Gulf, and identify gaps which will help inform discussions and planning both during the workshop and into the future.
The inventory will be composed of annotated listings of resources of Mexican or Cuban origin including:
- Research Programs,
- Data Resources,
Data collection for this inventory is now underway, and if you are aware of potential information that should be included, we highly encourage you support this important work by reviewing the information available on the Marine Ecosystem Science Inventory page.
