NOAA R/V Gordon Gunter GORDON GUNTER's primary mission is to provide a working platform for scientific surveys of the health and abundance of living marine resources. The ship's principal operating areas are the Gulf of Mexico, the Atlantic Ocean, and the Caribbean Sea. The GORDON GUNTER is capable of collecting data on fish, marine mammals, the ocean environment, and marine habitats and is acoustically quieted and serves as an excellent platform for observing marine mammals.

DISCOVREhttp://fl.biology.usgs.gov/DISCOVRE/discovre_gmap.htmlThis 4-year multi-disciplinary research programme will focus on understanding the physical oceanography, biology, ecology, genetic connectivity, and trophic dynamics of cold-water coral environments in the Gulf of Mexico. The program has brought together a group of international collaborators, including scientists from the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), University of North Carolina Wilmington (UNC-W), UNC Chapel Hill, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the Royal Netherlands Institute for Sea Research (NIOZ), and the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS). The 2008 cruise is currently underway, please visit: http://fl.biology.usgs.gov/DISCOVRE/.

USGS W FL shelf cruisesFlorida West Shelf Data on carbonate chemistry of the ocean's surface were collected along transects on the shallow inner west Florida shelf. Three cruises in 2008 and 2009 sampled GOM west Florida Shelf for pCO2, pH, DIC, Talk , and pO2 air2008, 2009, 2011In 2011, cruises include Jan, Feb, May, June, Sept and November.
