Project Description

Texas OneGulf consortium will use Center of Excellence funding to create a Disaster Research Response capability that can be employed by Natural Resource Trustees to rapidly assess the impact of disasters along the Texas Gulf coast in real-time. The state of Texas, through Texas OneGulf will be the first to combine human-health focused resources with experts in marine and ocean science, policy and law, and interface with sophisticated data acquisition, management and retrieval programs (Texas Knowledge Base). Texas OneGulf will implement the disaster research response (DR2) system consisting of coordinated environmental health disaster research data collection tools and a network of trained research responders.
