Urgent Post-Hurricane Irma Science Coordination Meeting

The Science Coordination Group (SCG) sponsored WebEx meeting has been scheduled to enable coordination and communication among those agencies and research scientists conducting emergency post-Hurricane ecological damage assessments in the Everglades. WebEx meeting is scheduled for this Wednesday, September 27, 2017 from 9:00 AM-12:30 PM.

We are aware of individual government, academic, and NGO efforts already underway to survey and re-visit sampling sites by various entities and believe that communication and coordination among these efforts has the potential to yield much better results and greater efficiency. There was a similar effort that was organized following Hurricane Andrew that helped to guide future science research programs.
