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 are hosting the 3rd 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 will be held March 27-March 28 in Bay St. Louis, Mississippi and will consist of presentations from major groups conducting hypoxic zone on living resource impacts and biogeochemical cycling plus implementation planning for coordinated research, data collection, and resource management. A key workshop outcome will be a series of synthesis reports on Gulf hypoxia science that will serve as the scientific basis for an on-going science reassessment of the 2008 Action Plan of the Mississippi River/Gulf of Mexico Watershed Nutrient Task Force.
