Project Description

The Gulf of Mexico data diplomat hired through this grant will work closely with NOAA’s Marine Mammal Health and Stranding Response Program (MMHSRP) and stranding network participants, particularly Gulf Environmental Benefit Fund (GEBF) grantees, to ensure consistency and accuracy of data collected from stranded marine mammals in the Gulf of Mexico. In phase 1 of the project, they will work with the programmer on pilot database development, roll-out of consecutive database phases, train network users, troubleshoot any database glitches, and implement quality assurance/quality control (QA/QC) procedures. Future phases of the database will include rolling out the database across the Gulf of Mexico to include other states, training new network users and transitioning the pilot database to a larger national data platform.
