Marine research in the Gulf of Mexico now and in years to come is extremely important in the Gulf. We need research and monitoring to continue on the effects of the 2010 BP Oil Disaster.
We are glad that the University of Southern Mississippi stepped up and accepted responsibility for the Point Sur. The research that will come from the scientists who use its on board labs to help monitor the lingering effects of the BP Oil Spill and a variety of other ecosystem studies is extremely valuable.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org,
