Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference

The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) has been a sponsor and founding member of the Executive Committee of the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystem Science (GoMOSES) conference since it began in 2013. Annually, the GoMOSES conference brings together hundreds of oil spill-related experts from academia, state & federal agencies, non-governmental organizations and industry to share the latest oil spill and ecosystem scientific discoveries, innovations, technologies and policies. The GoMOSES conference seeks to link fundamental research on the Gulf ecosystem to practical application and is the premier conference to share Gulf-related research.
