On January 4-5, a joint meeting was held in Lafayette, LA, to discuss the Gulf of Mexico Integrated Science Program. The Director requested the Program in an effort to bring two USGS divisions (GD/BRD) and their major cooperators together. The Program seeks to identify mutual ongoing research interests in the Gulf Coast region, to examine areas of future study, and to explore opportunities for collaborative, integrated Gulf science research.

Representatives included managers from the USGS National Wetlands Research Center, Lafayette (NWRC), Center for Coastal Geology, St. Petersburg (SPFC), University of South Florida (USF), and University of Louisiana at Lafayette (ULL). Attending the meeting were Lisa Robbins (SPFC), Virginia Burkette and Bob Stewart (NWRC), Steve Landry and Carl Bauer (both from the Office of Vice-President for Research, ULL), George Newkome (Vice-President for Research, USF), Wayne Denton (former Vice-President for Research, ULL) and Brent Yantis (NASA/ULL Regional Application Center). Also attending were ULL faculty members: Darryl Felder (Chairman, Department of Biology), Robert Twilley (Professor of Biology), and Bob Gramling (Professor of Sociology). Representatives discussed scientific capabilities of their organizations and the draft Gulf of Mexico Integrated Science Program outline.
