Grants - UGOS 1 - Loop Current imageResearch Campaign to Advance Understanding of Gulf of Mexico Loop Current Moves Forward with $10.3 in Initial Grant Awards

The Gulf Research Program (GRP) is pleased to announce $10.3 million in grant awards for eight new projects to conduct studies and collect data and observations that will inform the planning and launching of a long-term research campaign to improve understanding and prediction of the Gulf of Mexico Loop Current System (LCS). A National Academies report released earlier this year identified existing knowledge gaps and called for a long-term research campaign to help improve understanding and prediction of the LCS. The GRP is currently developing the long-term LCS research campaign as part of its broader Understanding Gulf Ocean Systems effort.
