Gulf of Mexico Integrated Science Program Meeting
On January 4-5, a joint meeting was held in Lafayette, LA, to discuss
the Gulf of Mexico Integrated Science Program. The Director requested
the Program in an effort to bring two USGS divisions (GD/BRD) and
their major cooperators together. The Program seeks to identify mutual
ongoing research interests in the Gulf Coast region, to examine areas
of future study, and to explore opportunities for collaborative,
integrated Gulf science research.
Representatives included managers
from the USGS National Wetlands Research Center, Lafayette (NWRC),
Center for Coastal Geology, St. Petersburg (SPFC), University of South
Florida (USF), and University of Louisiana at Lafayette (ULL).
Attending the meeting were Lisa Robbins (SPFC), Virginia Burkette
and Bob Stewart (NWRC), Steve Landry and Carl Bauer (both from the
Office of Vice-President for Research, ULL), George Newkome
(Vice-President for Research, USF), Wayne Denton (former Vice-President
for Research, ULL) and Brent Yantis (NASA/ULL Regional Application Center).
Also attending were ULL faculty members: Darryl Felder (Chairman,
Department of Biology), Robert Twilley (Professor of Biology), and
Bob Gramling (Professor of Sociology). Representatives discussed
scientific capabilities of their organizations and the draft Gulf of
Mexico Integrated Science Program outline.
