2011 Workshop Proceedings

2nd Annual Gulf of Mexico Hypoxia Research Coordination Workshop The NOAA Center for Sponsored Coastal Ocean Research, the NOAA Gulf of Mexico Regional Collaboration Team, the NOAA Northern Gulf Institute, the NOAA National Coastal Data Development Center, and the NOAA Coastal Services Center hosted the 2nd annual workshop to coordinate research related to the Gulf of Mexico dead zone, the largest hypoxia area in the U.S. with nutrient management implications for 40% of the continental U.S.

The workshop, held March 31-April 1 in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi, consisted of presentations from major groups conducting hypoxic zone research plus implementation planning for coordinated monitoring, data collection, outreach and forecasting. Workshop outcomes are improved management of the hypoxic zone through coordinated Federal research and incorporation of workshop findings and plans into the Mississippi River Gulf of Mexico Watershed Nutrient Task Force's Annual progress Report and Annual Operating Plan.
