New Video Promotes Marine Observations

Gulf of Mexico Coastal Ocean Observing System (GCOOS) headquarters recently developed a new 4-minute video that highlights their mission to help protect and preserve the Gulf of Mexico and keep its residents safe. It also explores the need to maintain and enhance our existing observation tools, bring new measurements online and fill the largest data gaps.


"For the last 10 years, GCOOS has been quietly expanding data collection and access to data throughout the Gulf of Mexico," said Dr. Barbara Kirkpatrick, GCOOS Executive Director. "But it's important that the public have a better understanding of what ocean observing systems do and why it is important to develop, maintain and expand them. That's why we created this video."

The video, posted to GCOOS' new YouTube Channel, is being sent to members of the media in the five Gulf states. GCOOS is also working to share it with state and federal lawmakers.

GCOOS also requests that people send field-related videos and video snippets and keep them abreast of what's happening with your projects (whether you have video or not). To do so, email public relations consultant, Nadine Slimak at Vetted Communications.
