Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science ConferenceWhen:January 21-23, 2013
Where:New Orleans Marriott Hotel
The Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science Conference sponsors share a goal to improve society's ability to understand the Gulf of Mexico ecosystem, which includes humans, to ensure its long-term environmental health. One important aspect of this is understanding the impacts of petroleum pollution and related stressors on the marine and coastal ecosystems, as it will support future response, mitigation, and restoration following spills. But the Gulf is a dynamic and complex system that is facing several issues, such as non-petroleum pollution, hypoxia, coastal development, erosion and inundation, and climate change. This conference will engage and build a community of researchers working on all aspects of Gulf of Mexico ecosystem science and initiate dialogue with the users of that information.
Anticipated attendance: Approximately 1,000 people from academia, state and federal agencies, non-governmental organizations.
