At Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science (GOMOSES) Conference in New Orleans, LA, the NOAA RESTORE Science Program will participate in workshops, moderate a session, and learn about recent advances in Gulf ecosystem science and its application.
In partnership with the US Fish and Wildlife Service, the Science Program has organized a session to showcase examples of building partnerships and developing collaborations between scientists and resource managers, including several projects supported by the Science Program (living shoreline tool, coastal tools, observing systems, ecosystem modeling, seagrass, and Mobile Bay tool).
