NGI Progress Report Highlights Research Worth More Than $12-Million in Funding

The Northern Gulf Institute's 2014 Annual Progress Report includes research accomplishments and findings for 33 ongoing projects. The total funding equates to $12-million, including $4-million in new fiscal backing. The research ventures and 16 technical publications feature topics like expansion of ocean observations. For instance, the use of unmanned vehicles and enhanced satellite data analysis. This cutting-edge technology allows scientists to better understand ocean acidification, manage fisheries and estuaries, predict freshwater and oil spill plumes, and forecast tropical storm activities. This research will provide critical information in support of restoration activities and fisheries management in the Northern Gulf of Mexico.
