NOAA Funds Marine Forecasting In Gulf

The $4 million competitive grant was awarded to a group of university researchers to create more precise computer models of ocean and coastal conditions in the Gulf of Mexico.

As the Deepwater spill clean-up in the Gulf of Mexico continues, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) is donating $4 million to support better marine forecasting in that region.
