Special Announcement: GCOOS Spring Webinar Series 2022
Southern Gulf of Mexico Marine Observations, Research and 
Technology: Opportunities for Gulf-Wide Synergies and Cooperation
Join the Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System (GCOOS), Texas A&M University (TAMU) and the Society for Underwater Technology (SUT) as we invite colleagues from two major Mexican marine research consortia to share information about their basic and applied research in the southern Gulf of Mexico. 

During this four-webinar series, members of the Gulf of Mexico Marine Science Research Consortium (CIGOM) and the Mexican Center for Marine Energy Innovation (CEMIE-Océano) will discuss observations, scientific contributions and innovations, as well as databases, models, human capacities and physical infrastructure.

The webinars, which will be conducted in English, are meant to reach a U.S. audience that may or may not be familiar with CIGOM and CEMIE-Océano — including those at federal and state agencies involved in ocean management and research, and the private sector.
