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).
