The Gulf Coast communities and natural resources suffered extensive damage from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and they continue to be stressed by a myriad of factors including sea level rise, changing hydrology, and human activities like fishing and industry activities. The Gulf Research Program is funding research to protect the environmental resources of the Gulf of Mexico. Mississippi State University is leading the research effort on restoring coastal wetlands.
