It has been ten years since the Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) began in response to the Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster in April 2010. Since then the program has produced a plethora of Gulf of Mexico data (all found on GRIIDC!) that has helped researchers better understand the current ecological state of the Gulf, as well as data that will help communities better understand, prepare for, and respond to future incidents. GoMRI has inspired countless scientists, students, professionals and the general public during this epic time of research and GRIIDC is happy to be a part of that legacy. Take a look at this article by GoMRI highlighting the last ten years of the program:
