Over the next several months, project teams who received funding from the NOAA RESTORE Science Program in 2017 will be presenting their results as a OneNOAA Science Seminar Series, entitled Actionable Science in the Gulf of Mexico. A total of fifteen research teams were awarded $16.7 million to support work on living coastal and marine resources and their habitats in the Gulf of Mexico.
