Our History

Texas OneGulf was established in January 2015 as a Texas Center of Excellence after the Deepwater Horizon disaster to advance research into ongoing impacts from the oil spill and other long-term issues that threaten the health and sustainability of the Gulf of Mexico.

We Are Nine Texas Institutions

Texas OneGulf is a consortium of nine top state institutions led by the Harte Research Institute (HRI) for Gulf of Mexico Studies at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi with wide-ranging expertise in the environment, the economy and human health.

What We're Doing Today

The RESTORE Act designates five disciplines that must be addressed: coastal sustainability, restoration and protection; fisheries and wildlife research and monitoring; safe offshore energy development; sustainable and resilient economic growth; and comprehensive Gulf of Mexico observation, monitoring and mapping. Texas OneGulf has identified the following priorities for its first two years that meet these requirements:

Texas OneGulf Network of Experts (TONE)

TONE is a network of 142 Gulf experts that Texas leaders may call on to help develop science driven solutions to Gulf problems and respond to Gulf related emergencies, assuring that the best available science is brought to bear on them.

Strategic Research and Action Plan

A blueprint to guide Texas institutional research on the Gulf of Mexico. It will assure that Texas institutions are addressing the priority issues affecting its citizens while maximizing cooperative research and eliminating duplication.

Texas Knowledge Base

The largest ever Gulf of Mexico database to ensure Texas scientists, resource managers, decision-makers and the public have real-time access to the best available science and information.

Disaster Research Capability for Texas

An infrastructure to support disaster research response, encompassing environmental, human health and economic assessment capabilities that can be rapidly employed to assess impacts along the Texas Gulf Coast in real-time.
