Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Conference
The year 2020 is an important milestone for scientific research within the Gulf of Mexico. It marks the 10th anniversary of the Deepwater Horizon disaster and signifies the culmination of a decade of dedicated research that has increased our knowledge of marine oil-spill science, Gulf ecosystems, and the impacts of the spill to those ecosystems and communities. Additionally, it presents a pivotal moment as the Gulf research and management communities shift their discussions from “What happened to the oil?” to “How do we restore Gulf ecosystems?”
Join leading experts from academia; local, state and federal agencies; nongovernmental organizations; and industry at the 2020 Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference (GoMOSES), February 3 to 6, 2020 in Tampa, Florida, as they discuss this important decade of research and its policy and management implications.
