To create the gap analysis report, Ocean Conservancy first compiled this extended inventory of nearly 700 past and existing long-term monitoring efforts in the Gulf. We are providing this inventory as a service to scientists, academics and restoration decision-makers to save time and money when planning monitoring for their restoration projects or programs.
