Welcome to the
GulfCarbon Project Web Page!
FEATURED ACTIVITIES
The primary objective of the GulfCarbon project is to provide quantitative information and robust observations for determination of emissions and uptake of CO2 along with cycles of carbon and other elements as well as factors regulating these for the northern Gulf of Mexico ocean margin. This website is intended to provide a central portal to communicate activties of the project to participating investigators, potential collaborators, program managers and the general public.

GulfCarbon researchers examine terrestrial and ocean carbon cycle linkages -
The GulfCarbon investigative team, which includes scientists, technicians and students, have conducted an extensive series of cruises covering the region from Mobile Bay to the Texas coast and ranging from inland coastal waters out beyond the shelf.

Coastal carbon synthesis effort -
A coastal carbon synthesis effort is underway for the U.S. North American Carbon Program. Results from the GulfCarbon program will be included in this effort.

GulfCarbon presentations at fall 2012 AGU meeting in San Francisco -
Presentations will be made by GulfCarbon investigators at the fall 2012 AGU in San Francisco, CA.

The GulfCarbon Project is comprised of a series of research projects supported by various agencies including the National Science Foundation (NSF), National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and involving the participation of a number of academic and research institutions.
GulfCarbon involves a partnership between the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, The University of Southern Mississippi, the University of Georgia, Auburn University, North Carolina State University, and Dalhousie University, with participation by the University of South Carolina as well as other academic and agency partners.
The GulfCarbon Project is affiliated with the U.S. North American Carbon Program and the Ocean Carbon and Biochemistry program.
