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.
We are a network of experts
The TONE is an integrated body of Texas experts in marine and ocean science, human health, economics, policy and law that can provide rapid, science-based support in solving Gulf of Mexico related problems affecting Texas.
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 Center of Excellence Pilot Project Program
The Texas OneGulf Disaster Research Response (DR2) Program will create for the first time an infrastructure to support disaster research response encompassing environmental, human health and economic assessment capabilities. The project will provide seed money for pilot projects that can be employed rapidly to assess the impact of disasters along the Texas Gulf coast in real-time.
