About

The Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System Regional Association is a 501(c)3 organization responsible for developing a network of business leaders, marine scientists, resource managers, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholder groups that combine their data to provide timely information about our oceans — similar to the information gathered by the National Weather Service to develop weather forecasts. Visit us online at gcoos.org.

GCOOS, which includes members from Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida, seeks to establish a sustained observing system for the Gulf of Mexico to provide observations and products needed by users in this region for:
• Detecting and predicting climate variability and consequences,
• Preserving and restoring healthy marine ecosystems,
• Ensuring human health,
• Managing resources,
• Facilitating safe and efficient marine transportation,
• Enhancing national security, and
• Predicting and mitigating against coastal hazards.
