The Gulf Research Program is hosting a webinar at 3 p.m. EST next Thursday, Jan. 18, to provide information about the National Academies’ new report on the Gulf of Mexico Loop Current System and the Gulf Research Program’s upcoming funding opportunities related to it.

The report, released last week, calls for an international, multi-institutional campaign of complementary research, observation, and analysis activities that would help improve understanding and prediction of the Loop Current System.

The first funding opportunity, Understanding Gulf Ocean Systems grants, will open in early February. These grants will focus on the report’s near-term recommendations, which address activities that can be started before extensive planning for the larger research campaign has gotten under way.
