Benthic Habitat Mapping Workshop

A Gulf of Mexico Benthic Habitat Mapping Workshop will be held at the Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill & Ecosystem Science Conference. The workshop supports the Gulf of Mexico Alliance Data and Monitoring Team’s Master Mapping Plan focus area. This year, partners hope to develop a model for alignment of the many mapping efforts already ongoing or funded for the near term. Updates from various efforts will be shared, including the Florida Coastal Mapping Program, the RESTORE Council-funded Council Monitoring and Assessment Program (CMAP), and the Alliance’s Master Mapping Plan.
