Over its 30-year duration, the Gulf Research Program works to enhance oil system safety and the protection of human health and the environment in the Gulf of Mexico and other U.S. outer continental shelf areas by seeking to improve understanding of the region’s interconnecting human, environmental, and energy systems and fostering application of these insights to benefit Gulf communities, ecosystems, and the Nation.
Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and their Aftermaths
The Gulf Research Program would like to express its deepest sympathies and concern for all those in the Gulf region being harmed by the devastating situation surrounding Hurricanes Harvey and Irma and their aftermaths. We wish for safety, strength, and resilience for everyone in the days and weeks ahead, and we are currently evaluating what we can do to be of assistance.
