One-Day Workshop Emerging Data and Models from the Gulf of Mexico: Mexico’s Integrated Baseline Development of Atmospheric, Oceanographic, Geological, and Ecological Processes, for Future Natural and Anthropogenic Threats.

Starts: Thu, Jan 11, 2018 9:00 AM
Ends: Thu, Jan 11, 2018 5:00 PM

The Group on Environmental Forces (GEF) from the Society for Underwater Technology in the U.S. (SUT-US) introduces the Mexican Research Consortium for the Gulf of Mexico Project (CIGoM), established to define the Mexican baseline for the present-state of the greater ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico, which will serve as a reference for future natural and anthropogenic threats.

CIGoM is the largest research project funded by the Mexican Science Foundation (CONACYT) and by Mexico’s Department of Energy (SENER).

Workshop research themes:
Oceanographic observational platforms, ROV’s & gliders
Environmental monitoring
Numerical modeling of the physics and biogeochemistry
Natural degradation of hydrocarbons
Analysis of spill scenarios
