Population growth, coastal and watershed engineering, fisheries yield, oil and gas production, nutrient discharge from large rivers and climate change have resulted in long-term, chronic pressure on Gulf of Mexico ecosystems. The Gulf has also experienced a number of acute natural and human-caused injuries. As policy-makers move toward implementing long-term Gulf of Mexico restoration strategies, there remains a critical need for comprehensive, long-term science, monitoring, mapping and observation that is planned, operated and managed with input from the scientific community. Please consider joining us for this Town Hall discussion at the upcoming 2012 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Salt Lake City: “Developing Strategies for Long-Term Research in the Gulf of Mexico” Monday February 20, 6:00pm – 9:00pm Ballroom B
